Recycle Your Cooking Oil

This is a time of year when the use of cooking oil increases! The cooking oil you use to fry your Holiday meal (or any meal) can be recycled, preventing dangerous and costly dumping and turning the oil into fuel. So, please help reduce costs associated with water treatment and clean up by visiting one of Greenville County's Residential Waste and Recycling Centers and recycling your used cooking oil. Click here for the location nearest you.

Recycling your used cooking oil saves tax pay dollars, keeps drinking water clean, and creates environmentally friendly bio-fuel.

Greenville County is offering a convenient way to recycle your real Christmas trees after the holidays; it’s the annual "Grinding of the Greens" event sponsored by the Greenville County Solid Waste Division and Recycling. Christmas Trees for Recycling

Real Christmas trees are 100 percent biodegradable; thus can be ground into mulch, which will be available, free of charge to the public at the Twin Chimneys Landfill. By recycling Christmas trees, precious landfill space will be preserved.
