Disposing of used fat: Getting rid of used fat and oil
In kitchens at canteens, restaurants and takeaways there are large amounts of used fat to be disposed of every day. Used fats comprise fats and cooking oils that have been used for deep-fat frying and frying among others. It is forbidden to empty these fats into the sink as they can block pipes and slow down the waste water sewage process.
That’s why private individual should dispose of small amounts of oil and cooking fat with other waste in the residual waste. Larger amounts, as used for deep-fat frying, should be collected and disposed of in the local recycling depot or another collection system. Gastronomic businesses, such as restaurants and catering kitchens, but also abattoirs, butchers or bakeries, are obliged to dispose of used fats and oils correctly. In addition, they have to use fat separators, to filter organic leftovers and fat from the waste water.
