Gobble Grease Toss

Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2023 Gobble Grease Toss! We collected 585 gallons of cooking oil for recycling. 

Frying a Thanksgiving turkey? Never pour used cooking oil or grease down the drain. Bring it to us during the Gobble Grease Toss. If you have cooking oil to dispose of before the event, please remember that it should never be poured down the drain or put in your recycling cart. 

  • Save your cooking oil in a closed container with a lid until the next Gobble Grease Toss.
  • Solidify your cooking oil in the fridge or freezer and dispose of it in the trash. 

Event tips


  • Cooking and vegetable oil only; no food or motor oil. 
  • Bring cooking oil in a disposable, hard-sided container with a lid to prevent spills. Do not bring cooking oil in a bag. 
  • Lexington residents only. No businesses, please.
