Dededo residents can dispose of oils

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Dededo residents can now dispose of their used household oils. Dededo mayor Melissa Savares, University of Guam Green Army, and Gresco have partnered up to collect used cooking oil to be converted to a cleaner-burning renewable fuel through Gresco's refinery. The outreach is intended to keep residents from pouring fats, oils, and grease down the drain or into the ground to keep from polluting the island's aquifer.

Residents are asked to bring oils in individual containers no larger than five gallons to the Dededo Mayor's Office on February 4 from 9-11am. For more information, contact Elvie Tyler at 735-0219.
