Cooking oil can cause big problems when you put them down the drain. These tips will help you learn how to dispose of cooking oil properly.
Did you know that when fatty and greasy foods are washed down the drain, the fat and grease in the food can build up in the sewer lines, just like in your arteries?
How to Dispose of Cooking Oil and Grease
- Collect meat drippings in a sealable container and dispose of in the trash.
- Scrape any leftover food scraps into the compost or trash; limit the use of your garbage disposal.
- Before washing, wipe grease residues like oily or creamy sauces from utensils, plates, pots, and pans into the trash.
- If available, like in Tulsa, recycle all waste liquid cooking or frying oils at a recycling station.
