Waste cooking oil should be recycled

Have your say

A new survey shows that a sizeable proportion of East Lothian residents are tipping waste cooking oil down their kitchen drain when it could be recycled.

According to a YouGov poll, local householders are paying the penalty for blocked drains within their premises, with 48 per cent believing mistakenly that Scottish Water will pick up the tab.

Ian Collins, of Living Fuels, which supplies waste cooking oil collection tanks, said: “The bad news is that the hard core of 22 per cent of adults in East Lothian are still putting waste cooking oil down the drain.”
