Raleigh to collect used cooking oil
Posted October 31, 2013
Raleigh, N.C. — The City of Raleigh will begin Friday collecting used cooking oil in an effort to keep kitchen grease from going down the drain and clogging sewer pipes.
Residents and places of worship are eligible for the free collection program and can arrange for curbside pickup by calling 919-996-6890. The oil must be placed in a sealable, plastic container marked “cooking oil.”
The city said it has partnered with Piedmont Biofuels to convert the old grease to biofuels.
The collection ends Jan. 15.
