Uncontained liquids are not allowed in the garbage.
FOG waste can’t be recycled or composted. Dispose of your fats, oils, and grease (FOG) in the garbage using one of these methods:
  • Pour into a sealable container — such as glass, plastic, or a sturdy Ziploc bag. Throw container in your garbage.
  • Mix oil with an absorbent such as kitty litter or dirt to make the oil solid. Throw in your garbage.

Did you know? The benefit of throwing FOG waste in the garbage to protect pipes and water outweighs the cost of throwing recyclable containers in the garbage.
