How should I dispose of cooking fat?

Pouring fat, oil and grease down your kitchen sink will block it. Simply let these cool before scraping the solid fat into your food waste bin for recycling. Alternatively, pour them into a non-recyclable container and put it in with the household waste.

Pouring fat, oil and grease down sinks and drains causes thousands of blocked drains in our region every year and can lead to sewer flooding and environmental pollution.
