If your Thanksgiving dinner includes fried turkey, then you know the oily mess left behind when the bird comes out of the fryer. Don't know what to do with all that oil? The Clean Cities Coalition says it is ready to help. On the day after Thanksgiving, the coalition is holding a cooking oil collection. Colleen Crowninshield, Pima County’s Clean Cities Coordinator, says the used oil will be turned into biodiesel.
Last year, the coalition collected more than 2500 pounds of used cooking oil on the day after Thanksgiving.
