EDCO Now Recycles Cooking Oil!

Don't pour it down the drain, in the yard, or in your trash. Bring it to one of EDCO's Buyback Centers and we'll make sure it is reused. EDCO has established a Fats, Oils, and Grease, (FOG) collection program. With your help working together we can keep fats, oils, and grease (FOG) out of the drain and the ground and establish a reuse for it. It's a free service and you'll feel a whole lot greener. EDCO will ship the collected FOG to a refining facility where it will be processed into biodiesel. Note: Please don't mix this product with any other oils such as motor oil or gear oil.
