Vegetable cooking oil is now recyclable

Oil can be brought to the Mission Recycling Depot at no charge

Used vegetable cooking oil can now be recycled at the Mission Recycling Depot at 7229 Mershon St. A private company is collecting the oil to produce clean-burning biodiesel.

Residents can bring in used vegetable-based oil, and an attendant will collect the oil and pour it into a locked container.

Only vegetable-based oils, such as canola, corn, coconut, and olive oil, are accepted. Residents are asked to strain out large food particles prior to bringing oil in for recycling. There is no charge.

Mission environmental co-ordinator Jennifer Meier says, “It’s a good move forward, as it helps reduce the amount of oil going down the drain and potentially clogging up the sewer system. With Ecozero using the oil to produce clean-burning biodiesel, we have an added bonus for the environment.”

For drop-off information, contact the Mission Recycling Depot at 604-814-3555.
