Cooking Oils & Fats
Never put any amount of grease or oil down the drain or toilet. Small amounts of cooking oil or fat can go in the trash bin.
Before disposing of used cooking oil, first ask yourself if it can be reused. For example: Pine cones can be dipped in melted grease or oil, coated with seeds, and hung from trees to make a makeshift bird feeder.
If you have more than a cup, dispose of it at a Household Hazardous Waste Collection event. For notification of events, Signup for the Keep Nassau Beautiful newsletter, www.keepnassaubeautiful.org.
