The Gulfsouth Youth Biodiesel Project, a program of Operation REACH, Inc., is collecting used cooking oil.

The collection campaign runs from Monday through Dec 3.

Oil should be put into original container before being dropped off. All oil collecting will be used to produce eco-friendly biodiesel fuel, help reduce emissions, and keep oil and grease out of the drains.
