La Habra to Offer Used Cooking Oil Collection through the 2019 to 2020 Holiday Season
The City of La Habra's annual Used Cooking Oil Collection Program will be available to La Habra residents through this year's holiday season. The program will start on November 15, 2019 and will continue until after the New Year ending on January 15, 2020. The program is held to offer residents a location to dispose of their holiday cooking oil. The process of deep frying a holiday turkey generates a large amount of waste oil. Fortunately, through this program, residents will have an easy option for disposal. All cooking oil collected through this program is recycled into fuel or biodiesel. Cooking oil should never be disposed of down the drain or in the trash. Remember to filter out any grease solids from your oil which can harm the quality of the cooking oil that we collect. Any solids or chunks of grease may be thrown into your organics bin. This program is offered to La Habra residents by appointment only. Please call for an appointment through the Public Works Department at (562) 383-4170.
