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.
- Solidfy 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 and put the mixture in a certified compostable bag or paper bag. Place the tied up/rolled up bag in your green cart.
- For larger volumes of cooking oil (over 2 litres) contact a cooking oil recycler (fees may apply)
Tip: Never flush fats, oils or grease down your toilet, sink or drain. They can damage your home's pipes as well as the environment.
