What to do with
Cooking oil and fat shouldn’t be poured down sinks as it can cause blockages. For information on the importance of keeping our drains free from blockages, visit the Scottish Water Website: http://www.scottishwater.co.uk/you-and-your-home/your-home/keep-the-water-cycle-running-smoothly
You can dispose of small amounts of cooking oil, fats, plate scrapings of fatty food and surplus oil from pans and trays in your food waste recycling service. Where you do not have access to a food waste recycling service, place in a sealed container and in the general waste bin.

You can now also recycle cooking oil at 7 Sainsbury's stores in Scotland.You can deposit household cooking waste including vegetable oil, animal fat and lard in a plastic bottle at the recycling banks located in Sainsbury’s car parks. From there the oils are collected by Olleco and taken to their recycling plant to be made into biodiesel.The banks are now available in the car park at Sainsbury’s in Blackhall, Straiton, Murrayfield, Longstone (all in Edinburgh) and Kirkcaldy, Leven and Linlithgow.
