We will mail the lid and instructions within a week of receiving the request. 


Steps for Using Grease Lid:

1.  Pour grease and other remains from frying pans into a jar or container.  The grease free lid fits most soup and vegetable cans. 
 
2.  Wipe cookware and utensils with paper towel to prevent greasy residue from getting into sink.
 
3.  Once full, recycle grease at one of Mecklenburg County’s four recycling centers.  Or add paper towels, coffee grounds, or kitty litter to absorb grease and toss it in the trash.

Thank you for being Grease Free!
