Biodiesel Fuel Program

Recycle Cooking Oil and Help Power
St. Johns County Vehicles!

You can help our environment and economy by recycling your used cooking oil. The County Biodiesel Program, Solid Waste and Utility Pretreatment Departments ask for your help in recycling used cooking grease to convert into environmentally friendly fuel.

Biodiesel fuel is biodegradable, safer for the environment than other fuels, and costs less to make. Grease poured down the drain clogs pipes and causes sewer overflows causing costly clean-ups and environmental fines. It also makes its way into our waterways and pollutes our water. Get the Biodiesel Recycling Flyer and see the North Florida Transportation Planning Organization Clean Cities program advertisement saluting St. Johns County for making a difference.
