How do you dispose of cooking oil that's been used?

I either pour it down the road drain with lots of hot soapy water or mop most of it up with paper towel and use it to light the fire. Can't put it down our drain because we have a septic tank.

I normally pour it into a bottle and put it in the bin.....
not really sure what is the proper way to dispose of it.perhaps a compost heap?but I don't have one.

Put it into a bottle and take it to the tip. Don't pour it down any drain, that isn't a responsible disposal method! Water companies waste spend so much money removing 'fatbergs' from the drains and sewers.

Do you all keep a bottle on hand or just use an old milk bottle or something?

I use any plastic bottle that's lying around.

We don't use that much so a quick wipe around the pan with kitchen roll is enough.

On the rare occasion we use more it goes into a bottle or a tub and into the bin.

if you have a garden, tip into a corner of that. Otherwise bottle and bin.

NEVER down any drains, yours or not.
