In previous years, the City of Arvada offered a cooking oil recycling event the Saturday after Thanksgiving. However, SustainAbility, located at 6240 W 54th Avenue, can take your used cooking oil YEAR 'ROUND at no cost. Therefore, Arvada’s cooking oil collection event will NOT be held this year. Please take your used cooking oil to SustainAbility.
It can be difficult to properly dispose of used cooking oil, and if you deep fry your Thanksgiving turkey, there could be plenty of it! Used cooking oil cannot be poured down the sink because it clogs pipes. It cannot be thrown into the trash, because the liquid will leak out of trash trucks.
Please, dispose of it safely!
