Fats, Oils and Grease
Cooking fat, oil and grease (FOG) can clog the pipes in your home and in our wastewater system and cause sewage to back up into your home, yard, street and waterways. Not only will you have to pay a plumber to fix things, JEA will have to pay for these cleanups, too, which can lead to higher utility bills.
Running hot water and turning on your garbage disposal while you pour grease down the drain does not work. The grease will still clog your pipes.
How to Properly Dispose of Fats, Oil and Grease
- Pour cooking grease into a used can.
- Seal the can in a plastic bag.
- Put the plastic bag in the trash or recycle it for biofuel (keep reading below).
Recycle Fats, Oil and Grease for Biofuel
What to do with leftover frying oil? Recycle it to be turned into biofuel. Use the map below to find a recycling station close to you.

Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department Stations
JEA and Metro-Rooter provide cooking oil recycling stations at several Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department stations so that customers can recycle their used cooking oil and grease.
Apartment communities, condos and homeowners associations
Multi-family communities are also eligible to participate in the JEA Used Cooking Oil Recycling program. Qualifying communities receive a recycling station, in which residents can deposit used cooking oil and grease. A recycling company collects it and then refines it into biofuel and animal food.
Customers may also drop off used cooking oil and grease at the following locations:
- Clean Grease Biofuels
14476 Duval Place W. Unit III
8892 Normandy Boulevard
If you have any questions about the JEA oil recycling program or locations of the drop off, please contact JEA Environmental Scientist Amber Soto at 904-914-0859, Monday - Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., except on major holidays.

What Not to Flush
JEA’s Wastewater Treatment System is designed to dispose of human waste and toilet paper only. Many other commonly flushed items cause damage to the pipes in your home or business, as well as to JEA’s wastewater collection system and the treatment process. Flushing the wrong things can also lead to the formation of what are called fatbergs, large coagulations of non-biodegradable sewage consisting of wipes, grease, and other items not meant to be flushed.
Sanitary Sewer Overflows
A Sanitary Sewer Overflow is when sewage (or wastewater) overflows from the sewer collection system and can happen for a number of reasons.
