Grease Pour

The 12th Annual Grease Collection and Recycling Event will take place on January 7, 2017. This event will give you an opportunity to start the New Year off right by dropping off your used cooking oil and grease from all your holiday cooking and baking.

Since the grease collection event began in November 2005, we have collected nearly 30,000 pounds of grease. We appreciate your support in helping us keep grease out of our sewers!

Please join the Pima County Regional Wastewater Reclamation Department and our community partners: EDGE Group, Grecycle, Pima Association of Governments, and the Town of Sahuarita for the Annual Grease Collection and Recycling Event on Saturday, January 7, from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the collection sites below:

  • East O’Rielly Chevrolet 6160 E. Broadway Blvd.
  • Midtown City Council Ward 3 Office 1510 E. Grant Road
  • Northwest Pima Vocational High School 5025 W. Ina Road
  • South Kino Sports Complex 2500 E. Ajo Way
  • Sahuarita Sahuarita Town Hall Complex 375 W. Sahuarita Center Way

The collected grease will be recycled into biodiesel, a cleaner burning fuel than regular diesel.
