Food Grease


Updated on November 27, 2018



Put small amounts of cold liquid cooking oil or solidified grease in a compostable container like a paper bag and then into the green cart.


Consider reusing it! Save it in the refrigerator, then add a little bit when cooking potatoes, eggs, or vegetables to enhance flavor.
