This year in London a giant fatberg (the water company has called it) has been found in the sewers beneath the streets. The fatberg is composed mostly of man made waste such as used cooking oil and cooking fats. It even contains nappies and baby wipes and other man made waste that doesn’t belong in the drains and has created a giant tunnel sized blockage. It’s roughly 800 feet long and isn’t the first of its kind. Weighing in at approx 145 tonnes it highlights the issues the general public have with their waste oil.
At Fry Fresh we specifically deal with commercial used cooking oil collections, so where does this leave the general public waste. Here are some tips on what can you do with used cooking oil that will help you to save oil and ensure that future fatbergs don’t cause a problem in your local sewers, reducing waste and reducing the cost to public services.
