Cooking oil

capture

What?

Fats, oils and greases are food waste.

Where?

If you have a Food Waste Recycling service small amounts of fats, oils and grease can be disposed of in the food waste recycling bin. Remember to remove packaging. FOG's can be placed into cardboard egg boxes and then placed in the food waste recycle bin [check out the short video below]

Soiled kitchen roll which has been used to clean a pan can also be placed in the food waste recycling bin.

Larger quantities of used cooking oil can be brought to most Civic Amenity Sites. Check the Waste Services Locator on this site.

General Comment / Tip

Fats, oils and greases should not be poured down sinks as they cause blockages.

Fats, oils and greases are not suitable for home composting.
