Arvada’s cooking oil collection event will NOT be held this year. Although in previous years the City of Arvada has offered a cooking oil recycling event the Saturday after Thanksgiving, the local recycling facility, SustainAbility, located at 6240 W 54th Avenue, takes used cooking oil YEAR 'ROUND at no cost. In order to avoid an overlap in services, we ask that you take your used cooking oil to SustainAbility. Thank you!
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!
