Recycle Turkey Frying Oil at the Cafe At Rio

Those who are planning to deep fry their turkey this Thanksgiving may recycle their used cooking oil at the Cafe at Rio. 

A 50 gallon drum will be located on the back dock of the Tower at Rio building and will be clearly marked as a receptacle for used cooking oil.

The oil will be recycled through a partnership with the Green Dining Network for use as bio-diesel fuel and other environmentally friendly products. 

A much larger receptacle will also be available at Green Dining Network's location at 3654 S. 16th street in Phoenix. There will be a padlock on the receptacle, but users can simply lift the lid and pour the oil through the grates.
Contact Sustainable Food Systems Director Michael Hodgins at the Cafe at Rio for details.
