North Texas Holiday Grease Roundup

Post Date:November 17, 2017

The City of Lewisville is participating in the fourth annual North Texas Holiday Grease Roundup, which runs from Monday, Nov. 27, through Monday, Jan. 8.

Lewisville residents can bring their used holiday cooking oil and grease to the Steven L. Bacchus Public Services Center, 1100 N. Kealy Avenue, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 8-11 a.m. on Friday.

Thanksgiving’s fried turkeys, buttery foods, and gravy can be hard 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.

The collection not only protects pipes, it also diverts a valuable resource from being wasted in landfills. The used cooking oil and grease collected during this event will be used to create biodiesel, or turned into biogas for energy production.
