Holiday Grease Roundup 2020 Begins November 23

The City of Southlake will be participating for their second year in the Holiday Grease Roundup. The Public Works Department will provide a collection station where residents can drop off used cooking oil and grease to be recycled for free at 1950 East Continental Boulevard. The collection station will be accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from November 23, 2020 until January 4, 2021.

Holiday cooking can be hard on pipes and sewer systems. Washing oil and grease down the drain can lead to clogged pipes. This can cause sewer lines to backup in your home, which leads to expensive repairs and health concerns. To prevent sewer backups and clogged pipes during the holiday season, the Holiday Grease Roundup strives to provide a convenient location for residents to recycle cooking oil and grease.

The City wishes you a wonderful and safe holiday season and invites you to dispose of your cooking oil and grease responsibly. Free grease collection containers are available for pick-up in the collection station. For more information on other cities in the area that are participating, click here.
