BOYS CLUB SHOP NEEDS USED COOKING OIL
If you need a way to dispose of your used cooking oil, please contact the Boys Club’s Shop Department at 497-9101. The Club and the Tribe have started a program to recycle this cooking oil to produce biodiesel fuel for use in Tribal and Club vehicles. Biodiesel fuel is clean burning and costs less than diesel fuel.
