Holiday Message: No Cooking Grease in Drains

Holiday Message: No Cooking Grease in Drains

In preparation for the holidays, L.A. Sanitation is asking people not to pour fats, oils, and grease down the drain. This can be damaging not only to pipes in the home, but also to outside sewer lines.

LA Sanitation is now accepting household fryer oil for recycling at our S.A.F.E. Centers. The oil will be recycled for fuel and energy.

Pouring oil down the kitchen sink or drains can clog up your house plumbing and sewer pipes and may cause sewage backups and overflows. Let’s take care of our environment as we celebrate the holidays by recycling our fryer oil.

Make sure the oil is in a closed leak-proof container (such as the container from the store) and take it to one of our six S.A.F.E. Centers listed below. Please limit to 10 gallons or less. All centers will follow normal days and times of operation.

If you do not bring household fryer oil to the S.A.F.E. Center, please put the sealed container in your black bin.
