City of Coppell Encourages Residents to Participate in 2022 Holiday Grease Roundup

Defend Your Drains logo web

Fats, grease and oils make for rich, delicious holiday meals, but they can wreak havoc on your home’s pipes and the city sewer system. Remember to defend your drains this holiday season and collect grease for free recycling instead of pouring it down the drain.

The North Central Texas Council of Governments, the Wastewater and Treatment Education Roundtable, and American BioSource have partnered with several north Texas cities, including the City of Coppell, for the 2022 Holiday Grease Roundup. Avoid pipe buildup, clogs, and sewer backups caused by cooking oils and grease by collecting them in a disposable container, such as an old bottle, can, or milk carton, and bringing it to one of several drop off locations in the North Texas area. There are two locations in Coppell that are available for grease drop offs 24 hours a day, seven days a week for your convenience:

  • Coppell Service Center, 816 S. Coppell Rd. 
  • Coppell Village Parkway Pump Station, 1101 Village Pkwy.

The collected cooking grease and oils will be recycled into a clean, green alternative fuel called biodiesel or biogas.
