    Waste cooking oil should not be taken to household recycling centres (also known as Civic Amenity sites or CA sites) for disposal in engine oil banks. CA sites are not for commercial waste and placing cooking oil into an oil bank will render the entire contents of the drums unsuitable for recycling. Further advice on disposal will be available from your Local Authority.

    Put it on craigs list under the free section for biodeisel makers. They will come by and pick it up for you. You can also ask a restaurant if they will dispose of it for you in their grease dumpster.

    Just pour it in the gutter.


    Pour it down the drain w/ hot water and Dawn detergent.

    Good question. You might start by asking your local fast-food emporium to take it off your hands, for they've got to dispose of lots of it. Or find a sympatico restaurateur who will take it from you and dispose of it with his/hers. Worked for me.
