It's liquid but is is very dirty as in had a lot of pork meatball she fried in there. Debating what to do this time so thought I would ask how you dispose of all of yours. Thanks

I tip mine out down the bottom of the garden behind the shed! blush

Line a pan with a couple of carrier bags or nappy sacks, pour in oil, tie up and put in general waste.

Store in jars, take to the oil disposal at the tip.

Put in a jar and throw away.

Pour into an empty 4 pint milk bottle screw lid back on. Then throw away in usual rubbish, better than going down the drain.

Either pour of a tray covered in tinfoil let it set and bin or let it cool and tip it into food waste bin.

All great suggestions but love the milk bottle one, just got to remember to keep a couple of them instead of chucking out. Thanks all

We also tip it down the bottom of the garden, is that bad??

I use one of these www.lakeland.co.uk/p71002/Absorb-Bin™-Range

When full the liner then goes in the foodwaste.

Mop it up with kitchen towel and put it in the bin.

Food waste bin. I line the caddy with one of the special bags and as there are usually other scraps in there already some of it gets absorbed by that... The bags don't leak into the caddy anyway!

Ours can be recycled at the kerbside. Didn't realise that was unusual!

We just fill any container (typically it's an empty squash bottle) and screw on the lid and put it in the same box as the paper/glass/cardboard.

Get a mug, put small freezer/food bag in mug, pour in the fat, tie bag in a knot, throw in the bin

I usually try and soak it up with kitchen roll then throw that in the bin.
