DEEP FRIED TURKEY OIL COLLECTION
November 24

Morin Brothers is acting as a collection point for vegetable oil used in deep frying turkeys for Thanksgiving again this year.

The oil will be filtered and converted to Bio Diesel for local use by the American Biodiesel Buyers Club (ambioclub.org). Collection will take place on Nov. 24 between 1-3pm only.
