Specialist cooking oil recycling is just another free service offered by the WMRC to help its residents manage their waste wisely.
What will my old cooking oil be used for?
Auscol can recycle your old oil into agriculture food in Australia and biofuel.
What’s in and what’s out?
Plant based oils are in and animal fats are out. See table for examples:
Accepted – plant based oils, including:
|Vegetable||Animal Fats (they solidify on cooling)|
|Olive (including blends)|
How much cooking oil do you accept?
Household quantities <20L are accepted. Contact us for where to take commercial quantities.
What about animal fats?
Allow it to solidify before scraping into a glass (NOT plastic) container and place into your red-lidded general waste bin. NEVER pour any fats or vegetable cooking oils down your kitchen drain as they can cause fatbergs and damage drain pipes.
