How to dispose of cooking oil the right way

If you cook regularly, you need to know how to properly dispose of cooking oil. Whether frying or browning our favorite foods, there is often excess oil left over at the end of the day. While we often think that the easiest (and quicker) way would be to pour oil down the sink or down the toilet, you’ve got it all wrong.

In fact, this will do more harm than good. Once oils solidify, they form solidified clumps of fatty waste called “fatbergs.” This inevitably clogs the plumbing and wreaks havoc on your drains. Additionally, these fatbergs can cause sewage backlogs that can also pollute local waters. Plus, there’s no way you’ll have to spend money on expensive repairs or plumbing.
