Recycle Cooking Oils & Grease
Please don't put oil and grease from your holiday feasts down the drain, which can lead to clogged sewer pipes and costly repairs. Put it in the trash or recycle it instead! The NRH Public Works Department will collect used cooking oils and grease for recycling December 2 - 6 and January 6 - 10. Containers holding discarded oils and grease must be made of plastic and have a screw top lid. Please call 817-427- 6440 to arrange a pick up or get more information. Visit our website to learn more.
