Recycle your cooking oil at the Gobble Grease Toss

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – If you find yourself with leftover cooking oil after Thanksgiving, you can toss it for free at the Gobble Grease Toss.

The Gobble Grease Toss takes place on Friday, November 23 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Redwood Cooperative School, 166 Crestwood Drive in Lexington.

Last year, the Gobble Grease Toss collected more than 400 gallons of used cooking oil, which was a record amount, according to organizers.

The cooking oil that is collected will be recycled into biofuel by Kelley Green Biofuel, and some of the cooking oil will be used for research at the University of Kentucky’s Center for Applied Energy Research.

The Gobble Grease Toss is free for all Fayette County residents (no businesses).

Cooking oil needs to be in a disposable container with a lid.
