Cooking Oil Recycling
The town offers free, year-round recycling for used cooking oil. Cooking oil can create backups and overflows if disposed of in sinks, and throwing it away can cause contamination in addition to creating a large mess. Free cooking oil recycling is offered at Fire Station 2, located at 24787 S. Sossaman Road. Visit QueenCreekAZ.gov/CookingOil for more information.
