Enjoy Dining Green (EDG) will collect used cooking oil the Day after Thanksgiving! EDG will start the first of their regular monthly collection sites in hope to reduce the amount of oil being dumped in our sewer system.
Enjoy Dining Green will have 2 collection sites, one at the EDG building located at 4551 S. Alvernon Way (between Irvington and Ajo) and the other in the Student Parking Lot at Salpointe Catholic High School, 1545 E Copper St. (on Mountain between Glenn & Grant). Any Pima County residents who have used cooking oil are invited to bring it to either drop-off location.
Enjoy Dining Green will have monthly collections for Tucson area residents. The schedule will be posted on their website, www.enjoydininggreen.com. Enjoy Dining Green is a coalition of concerned and environmentally-conscious people and restaurants united to practice environmentally sustainable recycling in the form of used cooking oil to biodiesel processing. In 2010, EDG and EDG Fuels will open a biodiesel facility in Tucson, Arizona able to produce up to 1.5 million gallons of biodiesel per year.
Enjoy Dining Green is also seeking pledges from area businesses and restaurants to help the environment by allowing us to recycle used cooking oil.
Enjoy Dining Green is part of EDG which is an innovative company with an environmentally committed staff. For more information about EDG, please visit our website at www.edgroup.us
