How to dispose of oil

Waste oil requires specialist collection and disposal and should never be poured down drains or put in normal waste bags and bins.

Fats, oils and greases cause damage and blockages in the sewer system. This leads to sewage backing up into homes and businesses. If presented on the street for the waste collection it will leak from the bag onto the street causing unsightly staining and slip hazards. You could get a fine for this or made to pay the clean-up costs.

Through Veolia's national network we can help you with a suitable collection service for your fat, oil and grease waste. Please contact us via 020 7641 6180 or use the contact form
