Pima County will be hosting the 13th Annual Grease Collection and Recycling Event on Saturday, January 6.

Th event will give residents an opportunity to start the New Year off right by dropping off your used cooking oil and grease.

Pima County Regional Wastewater Reclamation Department in cooperation with Grecycle, Pima Association of Governments, and the Town of Sahuarita will be holding an event at several locations around Pima County.

The event will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the following locations:

O'Reilly Chevrolet
6160 E. Broadway Blvd.

City Council Ward 3 Office

7600 N. Shannon Road

Kino Sports Complex
2500 E. Ajo Way

Sahuarita Town Hall Complex

The collected grease will be recycled into biodiesel, a cleaner burning fuel than regular diesel.

Since the grease collection event began in November 2005, Pima County has collected over 30,000 pounds of grease.
