The Maintenance Department oversees the City’s Biodiesel program. The City has purchased a biodiesel distiller. Maintenance employees traveled to Alabama to obtain the equipment and attend a three (3) day training course. WCTE Live Green filmed a segment that illustrated the City’s commitment to going green and how the Biodiesel program was one step toward that goal. The process begins with used cooking oil being picked up from local businesses and local drop off locations. A containment pad and bin was installed at the Cumberland County Recycling Center for cooking oil collection. That oil is then processed into an environmentally friendly, clean burning alternative fuel: Biodiesel. The City has currently produced and used 600 gallons of biodiesel fuel.
