Gilbert's third annual cooking grease drive started last week, when the town began accepting the material so it can be turned into biodiesel. The town asks residents to recycle grease rather than dump it in a drain, as it can create costly plumbing repairs for homeowners and the town. Gilbert organizes the drive with REV Biodiesel, a Gilbert-based company that recycles the grease.
Residents can drop off grease through Jan. 13 at any of the town's nine fire departments. The locations can be found at www.gilbertaz.gov/areamaps/firestations.cfm.
