Kauai refuse stations to stop accepting used cooking oil

Residential used cooking oil will no longer be accepted at the Lihue and Hanapepe refuse transfer stations as of July 1, Kauai County announced. The program will end because of budget constraints in fiscal year 2014.

Officials recommend that people dispose of used cooking oil properly by straining the oil into a sealable container such as an old plastic jar with a lid, and discarding it in the trash.

Residents with large amounts of cooking oil are encouraged to collaborate with a local restaurant. Most restaurants have grease bins whose contents are recycled.

Anyone with questions can contact the County Recycling Office at 241-4841.
