Holiday Grease Recycling Program

Cooking Oil recycling site

In conjunction with the Mesa County Landfill, the City of Grand Junction is offering a second location to properly dispose of holiday season cooking oil for re-use/reclaim.

Residents can drop off used cooking oil and grease in a recycle container located in front of the Water Services Office near the Recycling Center (GJCRI), within the Maintenance Campus at 333 West Avenue, now through January 15th. Mesa County residents may also dispose of cooking oil at the Mesa County Landfill, located at 3071 U.S. Highway 50.

The program aims to reduce the amount of cooking oils and grease disposed in the sewer system during the holidays when more residents are cooking at home, reducing sewer maintenance and cleaning activities during the holiday season.

City Cooking Oil Disposal site hours:

  • Monday-Friday: 7:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. 
  • Saturday: 9 A.M. to 3 P.M.
  • Closed November 26th-27th, December 25th, January 1st
