After frying something, how should one dispose the oil? It's not good to dump it in the sink, how about the toilet?

I put mine into an empty can or jar, put it into the freezer to harden up, then throw it in the trash.

We don't want that stuff in the sewage system. Let it cool, pour into a container with a lid, and put it in the trash.

It's obvious for us guys up herein Canada.. as we've been recyling for decades!

Cooking Oil has been recyclable for use since back in early 2000's! The one suggestion of putting it into a jar or can/freezing it then put in garbage was how wold folks dealt with it prior to "Recycling" ability!

While, I live up here, and those below 49th parallel may NOT .. I found a host of sites that may assist you~~ What ever you do.. do NOT dump into toilet or sink as it will directly affect your plumbing.. never mind the sewer system etc etc!!

^^ would be utilized in a large business usage of cooking oil..Not so helpful for single family homes.

A recycling initiative
According to Boyce, this initiative started by Metro-Rooter and JEA will give people drop-off locations. So if people wish to give away used cooking oil, they can drop it off at these locations. The recycling centers are scheduled to launch on December 28. The first recycling center will be at the old Coggin Dealership. This dealership is located near the Southside Boulevards and Atlantic Boulevards. After the launch, the individuals who want to contribute to this program can give in used cooking oil at the Metro-Rooter’s office. This office is located in Normandy. This office will accept recyclable oil from the residents throughout the week, during the daytime.

OP.. It's a good/great topic for those who DO NOT KNOW better!!

Get a Mercedes 200D? It will run on it.

We cook grains for chickens. Oil goes into it.

MOST food service operators in the US from the 1930s have sold their edible fats, oils, bones and the like to a rendering company. The soap industry was largely based on recycling animal oils.

Let it cool, dump it in an old milk jug or pop bottle, cap, throw in trash. Or hold onto it, mix with several cups of sugar and sneak it into your cheating lover's gas tank when you find they're at the local motel even though they're supposedly "working late".

Whatever works.

yes, that is how we do it as well. Maybe a little, from time to time will end up in the system. we are on septic tanks, but normally we save a little bacon grease for seasoning a few things. Otherwise the grease goes into a container and gets deposited in the trash. I will add, we book with very little oil anyway, usually just breakfast meats. But still we have a little oil or drippings from things like maybe something that has been cooked in the oven.

This is why I don't do deep fry at home. But on the very small occasion when I do, I let it cool, put it in a zip lock bag, and dump it in the trash.
