EDCO waste-collection and recycling company has established a free fat, oil and grease (FOG) collection program at its transfer station located at 2755 California Ave. in Signal Hill. Through the new program, residents of the region will now have a safe and more environmentally friendly option for disposing of their household FOG.
Participants are asked to simply collect used, discarded FOG in a leak-proof container and drop it off at EDCO Recycling & Transfer’s Buyback Center. The FOG will then ultimately be processed, filtered and converted into bio-diesel by a third-party processor.
It is important that participants do not mix FOG with any other oils, such as motor oil or gear oil, that inhibit the process of converting the FOG into bio-diesel.
