Henry Clay High Wants Your Greased Lightning

Are you frying your Thanksgiving turkey this year? You can recycle your used cooking oil at the city’s Gobble Grease Toss. Henry Clay High School will be collecting your used cooking oil and grease to be made into biodiesel by students for an independent study course.

We will be accepting used cooking oil and fryer grease from citizens (no businesses, please) from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. on Friday, November 28th, at Henry Clay High School at 2100 Fontaine Road. Please bring your cooking oil and fryer grease in a closed container to prevent spills. For more information, please contact Jennifer at (859) 258-2807.

Cooking oil and grease can cause problems if it is poured into toilets, sinks or other sanitary sewer drains. Fats, oil and grease (FOG) solidify in sewer pipes and cause clogs. In your home, FOG buildup can lead to slow-running drains, odor issues and even sewer backups.

If you are unable to attend the Gobble Grease Toss and you have cooking oil or grease to dispose of, remember that it should not be poured into sinks or other drains. Instead, cooking oil and grease can be poured into a can, cooled and thrown in the trash.
