How to compost cooking oil, fats and grease

Put up to two litres of cooking oil, fats, sauces, drippings and grease in your green cart for composting.

Special instructions

  • Solidify fats and grease by letting it cool at room temperature or in fridge.
  • Mix oil with an absorbent material such as paper towel, sawdust or kitty litter. Put the mixture in a certified compostable bag or paper bag.
  • Place the tied up/rolled up bag in your green cart.
