Grease Recycling and Pharmaceutical Disposal Event
Columbus Water Works, Keep Columbus Beautiful, and the Muscogee County Sheriff’s Department are teaming up to hold another Grease Recycling and Pharmaceutical Disposal Event!

On Saturday, January 11, 2020, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. we will be at Big Lots on Sidney Simons Boulevard and Columbus Water Work's parking lot collecting used cooking grease and old or unused medications. Please join us in our efforts to protect the environment by bringing your used cooking grease and old medications for recycling and proper disposal.

The recycling of old medications and used cooking grease are a part of our initiative to be good stewards of the environment. By collecting them, we help to prevent the clogging of sewer lines which can be costly.

If you can’t make it to the event, there are also 11 stationary drop-off sites located throughout Columbus. These sites are available 24-hours a day, 7 days a week for your convenience. Thank you for your assistance in keeping cooking grease out of the sewer lines.
