SFGreasecycle Program

Just in time for the holidays, SFWater has some great news on SFGreasecycle - their used cooking oil to biofuel program!

Throughout the holidays, most people cook and share meals with friends and family. That means a spike in leftover used cooking oil. To help minimize the amount of grease getting into our sewer system, SFGreasecycle has partnered with local retailers to enable San Francisco residents to drop off used cooking oil throughout the holiday season.

Fats, oils and grease are a serious problem for San Francisco's sewer system, clogging the sewers and costing the City more than $3.5 million each year.  SFGreasecycle is a citywide effort to divert fats, oil and grease away from the sewers and recycle them into biofuel.

For a list of convenient drop-off locations in San Francisco, visit SFGreasecycle.org
