Cooking Oil/Grease Recycling

North Charleston Sewer District recently partnered with Midlands Biofuels in an effort to escalate its “Cease the Grease” campaign – and just in time for the holidays too! Midlands Biofuels offers a proprietary grease bin design to properly and safely dispose of cooking grease.

NCSD asks its residents to join the “Cease the Grease!” campaign by disposing of cooking grease in one of these bins, available in 3 convenient North Charleston locations:

  • NCSD Administrative Offices at 7225 Stall Road;
  • NCFD Station 5 at 6265 Dorchester Road; and
  • Felix C. Davis Community Center at 4800 Park Circle

Used cooking oil recycling instructions

  1. Let the used oil or grease cool.
  2. Pour the used cooking oil or grease into any container with a lid.
  3. Take your cooking oil to your nearest drop-off location.
  4. Open the lid on the recycling bin.
  5. Pour the used cooking oil and grease into the bin, then close the lid.
  6. Save your container for the next time you use cooking oil, or recycle your container.
