Holiday Grease Roundup 2019 Kicks Off November 25

This year will be the first time Southlake participates in the North Central Texas Council of Government’s Holiday Grease Roundup. The City of Southlake’s Public Works Department will provide a collection station where residents can drop off cooking grease to be recycled for FREE at 1950 E. Continental Blvd. in the visitor parking lot. The collection station will be accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from November 25, 2019, until January 6, 2020.

Improper disposal of grease can lead to clogged pipes. This can cause sewer lines to backup in your home, which leads to expensive repairs and health concerns. To help prevent sewer backups and clogged pipes, the Holiday Grease Roundup aims to provide a convenient location for residents to recycle grease.

The City hopes you have a wonderful holiday season and invites you to dispose of your cooking oil and grease responsibly.  Free grease collection containers will be available for pickup in the actual collection station or residents can come inside the City’s Operations Center at 1950 E. Continental Blvd on weekdays from 7:30 am to 4:00 pm.  For more information on other cities in the area that are participating, click here.
