Waste Cooking Oils

The County Biodiesel Program needs your waste cooking oils to recycle into biodiesel fuel. Biodiesel is safer for the environment and costs much less. Grease clogs pipes, causes sewer overflows, and gets into waterways polluting our water. Find out how you can help save money and protect our environment!
