Can it be recycled?
If you have a food waste recycling service, you can recycle small amounts of cooking oil and fats in your food waste bin.
If you have large amounts of oil to throw away, some recycling centres accept cooking oil for recycling. To find out where your nearest centre is use our recycling locator tool or head on over to our services at a glance area, find your borough and scroll down to the map at the bottom of the page.
If you don’t have a food waste recycling service, or have large amounts of oil to throw away and can’t get to a recycling centre, don’t pour it down the sink as this can block your pipes or cause fatbergs in sewers. Instead, pour into a container, seal it, and throw in your rubbish bin.
