Frying a turkey this Thanksgiving? Recycle your cooking oil at the Gobble Grease Toss! Cooking oil will be used by UK's Center for Applied Energy Research to study biofuel processing and recycled by Kelley Green Biofuel. Last year, we collected more than 500 gallons of cooking oil from 106 participants.

You are asked to have your cooking oil in a disposable container with a lid in your trunk. Please do not bring cooking oil in a bag. Be ready to pop the trunk lid when you arrive. Please stay in your car.

This event is free and for Fayette County residents only.

Cooking oil can clog household drain pipes and city sewer pipes. Cooking oil should never be poured down drains. While cooled cooking oil can be disposed of in the trash, the Gobble Grease Toss offers everyone a chance to recycle it instead.
