Liquid oil that gets tossed in trash carts attracts insects and rodents. When the trash gets crushed in the trucks, liquids leak out onto the ground. It doesn’t look good; and, it’s not great for the environment.
It's easy to protect your pipes from damage and protect the environment. Even a little oil down the drain can cause big problems for your pipes! Simply pour grease into a container once it has cooled. Let it solidify, then cover it and place it in the trash. (Tip: Kitty litter poured into cooled oil helps it solidify faster and better!)
Used cooking oil, fats and grease are considered household hazardous waste and can be safely disposed of at X-treme Green events. Please remember to be very careful handling hot oil.
