I put it in the fridge in a tupperware til it solidifies then scrape it into a plastic bag on bin collection day and put it in the bin.

any oil we have tends to get put into a milk carton and binned. Or if I have a tin handy then into there and into the freezer....but then I hve to remember to get it out and put it in the bin on bin day!

I wait for it to go cold, pour it into a bottle or empty can and bin it

My local dump has a cooking oil disposal. I think they convert it into fuel.

Another one with a collection jar that 'lives' in a dark, lower kitchen cabinet. When jar is full, screw lid on tight and dispose of it in the rubbish.

I just use kitchen roll to soak it up and then bin that. Guess it only really works if you shallow fry stuff though as otherwise you could get through a lot of kitchen roll!

We pour it into an empty oil bottle and put it in the bin. Cleaned out my fryer yesterday!

and of course, never never never down the sink.

what's left in the pan you can wipe off with kitchen roll and put in the bin.
