NH Town gets greasy
So let me get this straight, the city of Portsmouth NH, has discovered that by encouraging people to recycle their cooking grease at home--instead of flushing it down the drain--plumbing problems are reduced (saving homeowners money), wastewater treatment issues decrease (saving the city money), and a local company (creating American jobs) turns the stuff into cheap home heating oil and fuel (saving homeowners money, again). Oh, and it lowers the city's carbon footprint and dependence on foreign fossil fuels. Yes, this environmentally friendly stuff really is going to drag us down financially.
