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.
