How to Dispose of Cooking Oil The Right Way
When you pour cooking oil down the drain or garbage disposal, it eventually solidifies and clogs the pipes. This can damage your kitchen plumbing or the local sewer mains of your city.
In Clackamas County, Oregon, for instance, local wastewater treatment services have been struggling to cope with the amount of used oil and grease clogging up their sewage pipes as more people cook at home during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The problem is that many of us just simply don’t know how to get rid of cooking oil safely.
Should you simply include it in the trash? Will the garbage collection take it?
