ECUA Offers Cooking Oil Disposal Stations, Including A New One On Nine Mile Road

June 10, 2021

The Emerald Coast Utilities Authority has a new Cooking Oil Disposal Station at Ever’man Cooperative on Nine Mile Road.

The cooking oil station allows customers to capture and dispose of their cooking oil and grease in an environmentally safe and effective manner.

The disposal station is stocked with plastic containers of various sizes. ECUA customers can take a free container, fill it with fats, oils and grease, and return it to exchange it for an empty container. The collected cooking oil and grease is recycled as biodiesel fuel. That, according to ECUA, keeps it out of sewer lines where it can cause clogs and overflows.

ECUA customers can also poor cooled grease into empty cans or plastic bottles and dispose of it in their trash.
