I just had to highlight this great idea that my friends at the Bountifuel Energies Cooperative and Re505 have cooked up (pun intended).
In case you haven’t heard of them, Bountifuel Energies Coop is a worker-owned cooperative that turns waste cooking oil into bio-diesel, and Re505 is our local hub for e-waste recycling. Both of these organizations are helping to take our city and state into the next level of recycling and reuse of materials that many of us usually throw-away.
And what’s great about this action is that they are offering a place for us to dispose of all the oil we used to cook with during Thanksgiving, and then are showing the opportunity that waste oil poses as an alternative fuel. Not only is this service being offered free of charge, but they are also offering up raffle tickets to people who donate to win prizes to some awesome places around town.
