How to dispose of cooking oil the right way

If you regularly cook up a storm, you should know how to dispose of cooking oil the right way. Whether it’s frying or sipping our favorite foods, we often have excess oil at the end of the day. Although we often think the easiest (and fastest) way would be to pour oil down the sink or toilet, you’ve got it all wrong.

In fact, this will cause more harm than good. Once the oils solidify, they form clumps of fatty waste called ‘fatbergs’. This will inevitably clog the pipes and wreak havoc on your drains. In addition, these fatbergs can cause sewage backup, which can also pollute local waterways. Plus, the last thing you need is spending money on expensive repairs or plumbing calls.
