• Let the oil cool completely, then pour it into a non-recyclable container with a lid, and throw it in the garbage. Common non-recyclable containers that work well include cardboard milk cartons and similar wax- or plastic-lined paper containers as well as takeout containers.
  • Pour completely cooled oil into a partially filled trash bag. If you use plastic kitchen trash bags, it’s usually fine to pour a moderate amount of oil into the trash already in the bag; paper towels, food scraps, and other absorbent material help contain the oil so you don’t have a pool of it waiting to break out of the bottom of the bag.
  • Freeze or refrigerate the oil first to harden it. Pour the oil in an old can and put it in the freezer. Throw away the oil when it’s solid enough to come out of the can in one piece. If you have no more than a cup of oil or grease, pour it into a coffee mug and set it in the fridge. When it solidifies, scoop it out and into the trash with a spoon, then wipe out the mug with a paper towel or used napkin before washing it.
  • Mix the oil with an absorbent material, such as cat litter, sand or sawdust, before throwing it away. Save old oil for the next time you empty the litter box, and dump the oil into the litter.
  • Consider getting a Fat Trapper system if you do a lot of frying. This is a plastic receptacle that holds foil-lined bags. Just pour the oil into the bag, and when it’s full, seal the bag and throw it in the garbage. Each bag holds 32 ounces of oil
