Recycle your nasty old cooking oil tomorrow
If you’ve got a tub full of grease festering under the kitchen counter leftover from your holiday revelry, don’t dump it in the neighbor’s backyard when nobody’s looking – the city of Orlando wants it. Bring your used cooking oil to the City Hall Rotunda tomorrow (Tuesday, Nov. 27) between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m., and the city will recycle it. You can park in the City Commons garage, and your parking will be validated.
Here’s what they’ll take:
Grease leftover from cooking of animal fats (i.e. bacon grease)
Canola oil (Rapeseed oil)
Cooking oil should free of water, soap suds and food scraps, and should be transported in a clean, non-breakable, leak-proof container with a tight lid.
Apparently, you can now recycle cooking oil in Orlando all year round, and the city has even set up a webpage with more info on how to do it. You can find it at: cityoforlando.net/grease
