Free Cooking Oil Drop-Off Event

Saturday, December 2, 2017

Attention Thanksgiving Turkey fryers!

Residents may bring their own sealed containers with used cooking oil and empty them into drums provided at the event, at no charge. You do NOT have to be a resident of Moorpark to participate.

The City and its partner, Coastal Byproducts of Ventura, will recycle the used cooking oil and convert it into clean-burning biodiesel. Water, solids, and other impurities will be filtered out and used to help power a local wastewater treatment plant.

The City would also like to share a few safety tips for residents deep frying their turkeys this Thanksgiving. 

  • Put your deep fryer in an open, outdoor area. Do not deep fry a turkey indoors or on a wood deck.
  • Wear protective gear in case oil splatters.
  • Have a fire extinguisher on hand. If a fire erupts, calmly use the fire extinguisher to put out the flames. Do not use water.
  • Do not put a frozen turkey into a deep fryer.

For more information about the used cooking oil drop-off event, please call Moorpark City Hall at (805) 517-6294.
