With Thanksgiving here, a thought to consider is what to do with kitchen fat, oil and grease (FOG) that’s left over from all that cooking or after deep frying a turkey. For interested residents, Ramona Disposal has a free, safe and more environmentally friendly option for disposing of household FOG.
Residents are asked to simply collect used discarded FOG in a leak-proof container and drop it off free of charge at Ramona Disposal’s conveniently located Buyback Center. The FOG will then ultimately be processed, filtered and converted into biodiesel by a third party processor.
It is important that participants do not mix FOG with any other oils, such as motor oil or gear oil, that inhibit the process of converting the FOG into biodiesel.
Facility is located at the Ramona Recycling Buyback Center at 324 Maple St. Hours are 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8:30 a.m.–3 p.m. on Saturday.
(Closed on Thanksgiving Day)
Ramona Disposal is family-owned and locally operated and provides waste and recycling services throughout Ramona and surrounding back-county communities. For more information regarding Ramona Disposal visit our website at www.ramonadisposal.com.
