The Boys Club’s Shop Department has begun processing used cooking oil into biodiesel fuel.  Donations of equipment and other assistance from the Tribe have made it possible for the Shop to manufacture this fuel on site.  If you or your business has used cooking oil that you would like to recycle for this purpose, call Donnie Owle at 497-9101.  Arrangements can be made to pick up the oil if it cannot be delivered to the Boys Club’s Shop, located behind the Club’s Administrative Building.
