You Are Invited to South Platte Renew’s 5th Annual Grease and Oil Takeback Event

On Saturday, November 27, 2021, South Platte Renew (SPR) is hosting its 5th Annual Grease and Oil Takeback event from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at 2900 South Platte River Drive in Englewood.

Holiday cooking can leave gallons of unwanted oil and grease to clean up. Used cooking oil can congeal, resulting in clogs and blockages in homes as well as in the collection system. SPR offers a safe, easy and free way to dispose of oil and grease.


  • Residents of SPR’s service area, including the cities of Englewood and Littleton and the 19 connecting sanitation districts, can drop off up to 10 gallons of cooking and automotive oil per household.


  • Oil must be separated into different containers and be free of contaminants.
  • Cooking oil should be liquid and free of food debris.
  • Please bring grease and oil in separate disposable containers.
  • No commercial businesses, please.


  • SPR is also accepting canned and non-perishable food item donations during this event for their annual Food Drive.
