Broad River Volunteer Fire & Rescue is pleased to offer its community a place to dispose of used cooking oil. The container is located beside the main station in a well lit area and available 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Blue Ridge Biofuels will routinely empty the container so that the oil may be used for other purposes. There is a sign located at the bin which should answer any questions. We hope everyone will take advantage of this recycling program and tour the station while you are here.
