The Emerald Coast Utilities utility has a new edible oil disposal station in the Ever’man Cooperative on Nine Mile Road.
With the deep-frying oil station, customers can collect and dispose of their deep-frying oil and fat in an environmentally friendly and effective manner.
The disposal station is equipped with plastic containers of different sizes. ECUA customers can take a free container, fill it with fats, oils and greases and return it to exchange for an empty container. The collected cooking oil and fat is recycled as biodiesel fuel. According to the ECUA, this keeps it away from sewers, where it can cause blockages and overflows.
ECUA customers can also put poorly cooled fat into empty cans or plastic bottles and dispose of them in the trash.
Further disposal points for edible oil and fat can be found at:
