Annual Holiday Grease Collection Event Returns

Residents can drop off grease/oil for disposal

The City of Bakersfield’s annual Holiday Grease Collection event returns for 2020, offering a safe disposal option for cooking oil and grease for City residents.

Disposing of used cooking oil and grease down residential drains can result in clogged pipes and other damage, causing backups. Instead, residents can stop by either of the City’s Holiday Grease Collection locations and dispose of used oil and grease in a safe and environmentally friendly way.

Residents are asked to collect their used cooking oil and grease in sealed containers before dropping it off at the locations. There is no charge to dispose of used cooking oil and grease during the event.

The 2020 Holiday Grease Collection event kicks off Monday, November 30 and ends Friday, January 8.

Cooking oil and grease drop-off locations:

  • City of Bakersfield Wastewater Treatment Plant 3, 6901 McCutchen Road
  • North of River Sanitary District Main Office, 204 Universe Avenue

Residents may drop off their used cooking oil and grease at those locations Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

The event is closed on December 24 and 25, as well as December 31 and January 1, 2021.

For more information, please contact the Wastewater Division at 661-326-3249.
