2022 Holiday Grease Round-Up

Nov. 22, 2022-January 10, 2023

Collection cans are located in the Town Hall Parking Lot. 


Don't throw your Thanksgiving grease down the drain- Round it up and recycle it for FREE! 

Thanksgiving, with its fried turkeys, buttery foods, and gravy, can be hard on the diet—and on pipes and sewer systems. When fats, oils, and grease are washed down the drain, they stick to the inside of pipes, hardening and building up until they cause clogs and sewer backups. This can cause sewage to overflow into homes, streets, and local waterways. Whether the repairs are in your home or in the street, it can be costly and inconvenient. If the sewer overflows, city crews have to shut down streets, tying up traffic and increasing expenses for both residents and municipalities.

Instead of washing your grease down the drain, participate in the Holiday Grease Roundup and recycle it for free! The 2022 Holiday Grease Roundup kicks off Monday, November 22, and ends Monday, January 10.

The collected cooking oil and grease will be recycled into biodiesel or biogas, which reduces landfill waste and produces an alternative fuel that is clean and green.

North Texas Community Cleanup Challenge

Grab your gloves and litter pickers! The North Texas Community Cleanup Challenge (NTCCC) is on! This region-wide litter clean-up challenge is between cities and counties. As part of the NTCCC, communities compete to see who can cumulatively clean up the most litter during the months of March-May.  We could earn a trophy and bragging rights! 

Participating is easy! 

1. Organize a cleanup event with your own friends or family. OR  Pick up litter each time you walk around your neighborhood or park

2. Log your littler loot each time you pick up litter during March-May (see collection form at bottom of page)

3. Share your efforts and pictures online using #lifehappenshere, #NTXCleanupchallenge.
