How can I dispose of fat, oil or grease?

Please follow these easy steps to keep fat, oil and grease out of your pipes by using your Gunk Pot or equivalent container:

       

Scrape

Scrape food scraps and fat off your plates into your bin or food waste recycling.

Collect

Use your Gunk Pot or similar container to collect cooled fats, oils and grease from roasting trays and frying pans.

Wipe

Give plates and pans a quick wipe with kitchen roll or newspaper to remove any liquid fat or grease before putting in the sink or dishwasher.

Empty/recycle

Empty your full Gunk Pot into your kitchen bin, then wipe it out with kitchen roll ready to reuse. Alternatively, dispose of an equivalent container directly into the bin.

However, check the advice from your local council if food recycling is available in your area.
