Joplin Recycling Center Now Accepting Cooking Oil

A container has been placed at the recycling center to collect cooking oils, grease and fats.
JOPLIN, MO.--- The Joplin Recycling Center takes in paper, plastic and now cooking oil. A container has been placed at the recycling center to collect cooking oils, grease and fats. Recycling of the oils helps the environment and also prevents damage to the pipes in your home.

It also helps the City of Joplin's sewer lines. The oils clog up the lines very easily if they're poured down the drain. You're encouraged to strain out food scraps and then pour it in the container at the center. 

"Ozark Grease and Recycling will take the grease from me and he sells it to Joplin Grease. Then turns around and sells it to producers who make dog food or cattle feed out of it or sometimes it's used for biodiesel projects," said Mary Anne Phillips, Joplin Recycling. 

The recycling center is open Tuesday and Thursday from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. and Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The center is located at 1310 west "A" Street in Joplin.
