A Westerly youth group that hopes to expand its grease and oil recycling project into Providence is presenting $25,000 worth of bioheat to five charities. Students on the Junior WIN Team of the Westerly Innovation Network were in Providence Friday to formally announce the donation and demonstrate how households can recycle their oil waste. The team founded Project TGIF, or Turning Grease into Fuel, which takes cooking oils and grease residue, sells the waste to a refinery, and directs the proceeds to charitable groups that provide heating fuel assistance to needy families.
