Cooking fat

Remember to recycle your fat. No fat in the wastewater system means no stoppages in the pipes. And the best part – your fat will be converted into biofuel. Thank you for minding your waste.

When you pour fat down the sink, it creates stoppages in the pipes, which can cause expensive and serious damage to the wastewater system. The fat may also attract rats. That is why – to comply with the law from 2024 – you are to deal with your fat as described below.

Small amounts of cooking fat

Wipe up small amounts of fat from pots and pans with kitchen paper and dispose of this in the brown food waste bag.

Larger amounts of cooking fat

  • Get a fat funnel at your waste station or bulky waste station.
  • Screw the fat funnel onto an empty plastic PET bottle and attach the cap inside the funnel's lid.
  • Pour cooled cooking fat and oil into the bottle.
  • When the bottle is full, screw the cap back on.
  • Leave the entire bottle in the fat collecting bin at your waste station or bulky waste station.
  • Reuse the fat funnel on a new PET bottle.

What happens to your fat?

The collected fat is converted into biofuel. A bus can drive 4km on biodiesel made from 1 liter of cooking oil!
