There is no better way to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday than cooking and even frying turkey and all the traditional fixings. But what do you do with the leftover oil, fats and grease? Whatever you do, don't pour it down the drain!
Pouring Fats, oils and grease (collectively known as FOG) down your sink could result in serious damage to residential plumbing and even municipal sewer systems. Instead, take a few short minutes to properly store or trash them.
Store it - Once the oil is cooled, use a coffee filter, cheese cloth or fine metal strainer to filter the oil into an appropriate container. You can then store the oil in the fridge or freezer for up to 6 months for later use.
Trash it - Once the oil is cool, pour it into small, unbreakable, sealable containers and dispose of in the trash. Only throw small amounts of oil into the trash, as big jugs can leak, making a mess of collection trucks and disposal facilities.
It only takes a few small steps to keep your plumbing and the city's sewer system clean this Thanksgiving.
