January 9, 2012 |

In Canada, Cowichan Energy Alternatives has started a residential used cooking oil collection program in the community of Duncan, on Vancouver Island.  At a cost of $2,500, a metal bin was placed close to Duncan’s city hall, allowing residents to drop off their used cooking oil and grease, with is then converted to biodiesel.

Cowichan has received an order for a similar bin from Ladysmith, with other towns and communities considering signing up for the collection service.
