Thanksgiving is a time for holiday celebrations, and if your holiday celebrations involve a lot of delicious food, you may have a lot of waste vegetable oil.

You can recycle your waste vegetable oil at the Fort Bragg Recycling Center. Simply pour the used oil into a sealable container and deliver the container to the Fort Bragg Recycling Center on the northwest corner of Butner and Reilly roads across from the veterinary clinic and just before the entrance to Pope Field.

Hours are Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. Call 432-6412 for more information.

If you cannot recycle your waste vegetable oil, please pour the oil into a sealed container and place the container in your household refuse. Do not pour oil into a drain or any device that flows into the sanitary sewer system. Oil residues can significantly damage water infrastructure and pollute the water supply, leading to expensive repairs and environmental damage.
