Fat, Oil & Grease - FOG

Fight household fats, oils and greases by properly disposing of your liquid greases.

Do not pour used cooking oil down garbage disposals, sinks, toilets, or drains. It leads to blocked sewer pipes, clogged drain fields, and increased maintenance costs. Do not pour used cooking oil on the ground or down storm drains where it can contaminate waterways.

Many fats, oils, and greases used in cooking can be used more than once. If you plan to re-use cooking oil, use it at a lower temperature when you cook to avoid breaking it down. Then cool completely, and filter through a coffee filter or cheesecloth to remove sediment and seasonings. Store in an airtight container in a dark place for up to 6 months.

Dispose Properly

  • Solid cooking grease and solidified fats can be placed in the curbside garbage container, or disposed of at the Recycling and Garbage Facilities. It is best placed into a bag or container less than 5 gallons in size. There is no volume limit.
  • Please solidify any liquids (see above, "Dispose Properly"). Liquid cooking oil generated by households should not be placed in curbside garbage or recycling containers, and it is accepted at any of Kitsap County's disposal facilities
