Donate your old cooking grease Saturday

Cooking up a feast can produce quite a bit of oils and grease. The Columbus Water Works says that even a little grease from the many homes in the Columbus can accumulate and clog sewers in neighborhoods.

Clogged sewers can result in unsanitary back-ups, overflows into streets, foul odors and damage to sewer infrastructure.

The Columbus Water Works, along with Keep Columbus Beautiful would like residents to drop off their container of old cooking oil or grease at two convenient locations in Columbus.

In addition used cooking oil can be used to make methane, which is used to power the South Columbus Water Resource Facility.
