Attention! The Utica Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection facility will be CLOSING for the season on Friday, September 30th!

Cooking Oil

The Authority accepts used waste cooking oil and grease at the EcoDrop Utica during normal business hours. Residents may deliver liquid cooking grade fats, oils and grease at no charge. The material is stored in a 300-gallon plastic container and picked up by a rendering company to be recycled into animal feed.

Restaurants and businesses should contact a rendering company for direct pick-up.
