How to dispose of cooking oil the right way

If you regularly cook up a storm, you need to know how to dispose of cooking oil the right way. Whether frying or browning our favorite foods, we often end up with excess oil at the end of the day. While 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 frozen clumps of fatty debris called “fatbergs.” This will inevitably clog your pipes and wreak havoc on your drains. Additionally, these fatbergs can lead to sewage recharges, which can also pollute local waterways. Plus, the last thing you need is spending money on expensive repairs or plumbing calls.
