    that would otherwise be tossed in the trash is being used to generate supplemental power at the wastewater treatment plant Our community has been very supportive of this program and has asked for additional opportunities to drop off used cooking grease more often than our bi annual collection events At CWW we listen to your input CWW is happy to announce the creation of two 2 Grease Recycling Stationary Sites to collect your used cooking grease Now instead of having to wait until August or January you can bring it to one of these locations any day at any time The only difference between our collection events and the stationary sites is that you will have to leave your container with your grease when you drop it off So please make sure that you bring it out in a disposable container These sites are located at 1335 Alexander Street just past the entrance to the Columbus Water Works Service Center on the right 3001 South Lumpkin Road Through the South Columbus Water Resources Facility main gate These stationary locations will only collect used kitchen grease Please do not drop off your expired or unused medications at these sites For more medication recycling locations and dates please call 311 If you have any more suggestions for improvement or new program please leave a comment below Posted By Columbus Water Works At 10 14 AM It looks like it s a good idea not to wash grease down the drain at home or when running the kitchen in a restaurant In my old job we would save all the used oil from our fryer in a big drum in the back by the garbage Every month we had a recycling service come and get our old used grease and take it a
