Thinking about frying that turkey for Thanksgiving? Don't even think about pouring the fryer oil or grease down the drain!

Instead, give the used grease or oil to the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC), and we will turn it into biofuel for use in vehicles.

See what might happen if you pour used cooking oil down the drain:

At Thanksgiving, most people cook and share a meal with friends and family. Come next day, drop off your used grease at one of SFGreasecycle's permanent collection sites in San Francisco. By doing that, you will help reduce sewer blockages caused by fats, oil and grease and turn a waste product into something useful - biofuel.

For a list of used cooking grease drop-off sites in S.F., go to SFGreasecycle's residential web-page.
