What to do with used cooking grease / oil?

Do not pour cooking grease or oil down the sink. There are a few options for disposal.

After reusing the grease/oil as much as possible, allow it to cool slightly and pour into a sealable container. Keep container in the freezer until garbage day and dispose of it with the rest of the household waste.

For commercial quantities of cooking grease contact McLeod’s By-Products 250-838-7007.
