The ever-so progressive and eco-friendly city of Santa Monica is at it again, this time with sewer clogging fats, oil and grease (FOG), which now can be collected for a new future as biofuel. In parking structures 2 through 6, restaurants can jettison their FOG for free, the city announced today.

Similarly, residents can recycle their FOG at the city's Household Hazardous Waste Facility at 2500 Michigan Ave. just East of the 10 Freeway at Cloverfield. Hours: Wed - Fri 7:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.; Sat. 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
