Bio Diesel

The Cherokee Boys Club operates 21 school buses on a daily schedule. These school buses travel approximately 1,100 miles per day and use 7,000 gallons of fuel per month.  The entire School Bus fleet uses Bio-Diesel that is manufactured at the Boys Club’s and Tribe’s Bio-Diesel facility located behind the Cherokee Transit Building.

The Bio-Diesel is produced with used vegetable oil and it takes a lot of oil to produce the amount of Bio Diesel the Boys Club uses.  If you have any used vegetable oil, it can be dropped off at the Bio-Diesel building or the Boys Club shop.
