SODC have just introduced a new cooking oil recycling service for residents as part of food waste collections.
After cooking and once it has cooled, any leftover oil can be poured into a plastic bottle no bigger than one litre in size. The bottle and its contents can then be placed into the kerbside food waste caddy, along with other food waste, and put out for the weekly collection. For those who don't want to use a plastic bottle, oil can also be poured straight into the caddy along with other food waste.
One litre of cooking oil can generate enough electricity to make 240 cups of tea!
