Grease Monster

                      SAVE THE DATE

13th Annual Grease Collection and Recycling Event!

When: Saturday, January 6, 2018 – 9am to 1pm

Where: Sahuarita Town Hall – 375 S. Sahuarita Center Way

  Pouring grease down the drain can clog the sewer lines
SAVE your used cooking oils and grease and bring it to US!

The Town of Sahuarita partners with Pima County Regional Wastewater Reclamation District, EDG Fuels, Grecycle, Pima Association of Governments to host this annual event. THANK YOU for your participation and saving our PIPES!

This event is held each year to remind everyone to properly dispose of cooking grease. Ordinary cooking grease and oils can clog sewer pipes and act as a magnet for grit and other debris. Eventually, the buildup of grease can clog sewer lines and result in sanitary sewer overflows (SSO). An SSO is the backup of raw sewage into the street, the environment, or into homes and other buildings.

To avoid a grease-related SSO, don't pour grease down your drain. After cooking, allow grease and oils to cool and then pour them into a can or jar. Bring your used cooking oils to the Annual Grease Collection and Recycling Event. The grease collected at this annual event is converted into biodiesel, a cleaner burning fuel.

Please Join Us on Saturday, January 6th from 9am to 1pm @ Town Hall Parking Lot (375 W Sahuarita Center Way)
