Can i recycle cooking oil?

No. Only large amounts of cooking oil from restaurants or factories can be collected for recycling.

  • Household cooking oil currently cannot be recycled.

How should i dispose of cooking oil?

  • Small amounts of cooking oil can be disposed of with the rest of your household rubbish. If possible, allow it to solidify by cooling down before throwing it away.
  • Don’t pour cooking oil down the drain as it causes problems when it solidifies.
  • For restaurant or factory oil, please contact your local authority who will help you dispose of it

Re-use your cooking oil:
