You just finished making your family a beautiful dinner of BLT (bacon lettuce and tomato) sandwiches; now what are you going to do with that bacon grease? Many people get rid of their grease by dumping it down their kitchen sink while the hot water is running. While this may have been a good solution back in the 60's, there are better ways. Grease recycling is a relatively new service that you can perform for your community. Here are a few reasons why you should find a grease recycling center near you.
Did you know that you can turn your old kitchen grease into a source of renewable energy? Both biodiesel and diesel fuel can be made from recycled kitchen oils, such as chicken fat, hamburger grease, bacon grease, vegetable oil, and more. Kitchen oils are filled with energy that could be used to power vehicles around the world.
Every minute of every day of the year, cars are emitting carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. This is just one of the sources of greenhouse gasses that contribute to global warming. Fortunately for the atmosphere, biodiesel fuel emits less carbon dioxide, leaving a smaller carbon footprint than other types of fuel. Recycling your grease is a direct way for you to help decrease the amount of greenhouse emissions in the world.
Protect Your Personal and Communal Sewer
Did you know that grease is one of the major causes of sewer blockages? While grease may be fluid and clear going into pipes, it does not stay that way. When cooled, grease becomes opaque, thick, and sometimes mucky. This can settle in a nice, thick layer on the inside of pipes, which can be built upon with future grease submissions. Once the grease builds up enough, it can block off the passage of water, causing it to build up and flood the other end of the pipe which leads right back to your house. Instead of going through the hassle of a plumbing emergency, recycle your grease and help to protect the environment. It really is a win-win.
In conclusion, there are many great reasons why you should stop throwing your grease down the drain and start recycling it. A quick online search could help you to find where you can take your grease in order to get it recycled. Collect your grease today to have a cleaner future tomorrow.Share

When I started thinking about what kind of cable television service I wanted for my family, I realized that I needed a pretty broad range of channels. With kids ranging from age 2 to 20, I knew that I would need cartoons, news websites, and entertainment channels that would suit everyone. However, after doing a little research, I had no idea which package to choose. Fortunately, one cable television representative took the time to sit down with me to explain the different packages. My blog is all about learning the tricks of cable television planning so that you can find the right fit for your family.
