Did you know you could recycle cooking oil?

by awitherick on 3 January, 2012

When I was younger I used to have to drain off the oil in a left over drinks cartoon on pain of death.  Too many examples of clogged up drains I think!

Used cooking oil has traditionally been difficult to dispose of and research has shown that the majority of householders in the UK are still throwing it down the sink. However getting rid of used cooking oil this way not only harms watercourses and wildlife but adds to your bill from water companies who have to spend on average £15 million per year to service drains blocked with fats and grease.

But did you know that you can also take it to the Household Waste Recycling sites?

From there it is then used for fuel.  You can find out more at:

Our nearest site is Ronsons Way:

14 Ronsons Way, Sandridge, off St Albans Road, St Albans. AL1 4AP
