Fat (oil)

Can I recycle it?

Fat which remains after cooking is not collected as part of your recycling collection.

Fat shouldn’t be poured down sinks as it can cause blockages.

You can seal your fat in a suitable container and place in your general waste collection or take to a local Household Waste Recycling Centre
