Resident Responses Requested for Survey on Fats, Oil, and Grease Disposal Program

Resident Responses Requested for Survey on Fats, Oil, and Grease Disposal Program
October 27, 2022

Virginia Beach Public Utilities is asking residents to complete a short online survey to gauge interest in drop-off locations for residential quantities of fats, oil, and grease after Thanksgiving. The survey opens today, Oct. 27, and will remain open until Nov. 7. The data gathered will help determine if this would be a viable program for Virginia Beach residents and where the drop-off sites should be located.

Improper disposal methods, such as pouring fats, oil, and grease down the drain or in your yard harm your private drains, our infrastructure, and the environment. These drop-off locations would provide residents with an easy way to ensure their fats, oil, and grease are properly disposed of after deep-frying a turkey or other holiday cooking. This program would not accept motor oil or drop-offs from commercial businesses.

Survey responses are anonymous. To complete the survey, residents should visit www.publicinput.com/holidaycookingoil.
