The Louisville Biodiesel Cooperative, the Louisville/Jefferson County Metropolitan Sewer District (MSD) and The Green Triangle in the 9th District are pleased to announce a partnership to recycle Waste Cooking Oil.
The first recycling station is: Louisville Biodiesel at 1501 Portland Avenue - Louisville, Kentucky 40203.
Louisville Biodiesel has already collected over a ton of Waste Cooking Oil for the local production and distribution of High Grade Bio-Diesel Fuel to benefit School Children and Small Family Farmers in Louisville and Kentucky.
Louisville Biodiesel is using the waste cooking oil to blend with its own waste oil collections to provide a low-cost, low polluting, high performance, non-toxic and non-carcinogenic alternative to petroleum diesel.
MSD's Senior Technical Services Engineer Wesley Sydnor, PE explains, "we're working with Tina Ward-Pugh and Louisville Biodiesel in several ways. First, free of charge we're providing reusable 1-gallon kitchen recycling pails with easy-to-use plastic lids for residents to recycle waste cooking oils. Grease/oil down the drain is an enormous issue for MSD in terms of overflows due to grease blockages. Residents can drop off their waste cooking oil at Louisville Biodiesel and feel good that this waste is being recycled locally into fuel for local school buses and small family farmers."
Cooperative member Christian Thalacker adds, "we look forward to expanding our relationship with Louisville/Jefferson County Metropolitan Sewer District (MSD), The Green Triangle and other districts in Metropolitan Louisville. This is a great opportunity to reduce our city's waste treatment costs while providing cost-effective biodiesel ... a low-cost, low polluting, high performance, non-toxic and non-carcinogenic alternative to petroleum diesel."
