    What is cooking oil disposal?

    As top cooking oil disposal experts, we have been collecting used cooking oil for over 40 years. Originally it was used for cooking animal feed and then converted into tallow before being used in the cosmetics industry. In recent years most used cooking oil is now processed into Bio-Fuel. As cooking oil disposal specialists, we offer a frequent collection service. We will also make sure you meet all legal requirements as a waste producer to only transfer waste cooking oil to a licensed and authorised collector. Your account will receive a credit at a fair market rate based on the quality and quantity of oil that is collected.

    We are a registered waste carrier and are fully compliant with the current waste management regulations. This means you can be confident you are dealing with cooking oil disposal professionals.

    What’s the problem with pouring fats and oils down the sink?

    Failing to undertake proper cooking oil disposal can lead to a range of plumbing, environmental, and economic issues. Here’s why it’s vital to contact cooking oil disposal experts…


    If you get rid of cooking oil down the sink, the fats and oils will solidify and stick to your pipes. This can lead to your pipes becoming clogged and drains completely blocked in the long run.

    Pipe damage

    In addition to blocking your pipes, pouring hot oil down a sink can severely burn and erode your pipes. As well as being frustrating, this can be a costly and time-consuming problem to repair.


    No one wants their business to smell of cooking oils and fats. If you dispose of cooking oil down your sink, your pipes and drains will eventually produce unpleasant odours as they decompose.

    Environmental issues

    As cooking oil disposal experts with a focus on sustainability, we urge you to contact specialists for disposal. If cooking oils enter bodies of water, they could significantly harm plants and animals.

    What are the benefits of proper cooking oil disposal?

    Staying legal

    The 1990 Food Safety Act provides guidelines on how to handle and dispose of used cooking oils. Businesses that fail to properly dispose of cooking oil can face serious penalties such as fines and even risk forced closure.


    Used cooking oils are recycled into biofuels such as biodiesel. For every litre of cooking oil disposal, one litre of biodiesel can be produced. This is much better for the environment as they are sustainable alternatives to fossil fuel diesel.


    Proper cooking oil disposal contributes positively to our environment. Used cooking oil can be made into fuel, therefore building a sustainable and renewable energy source. We have a responsibility to safeguard our environment as cooking oil disposal experts.
