A 12-month trial recycling program allowing residents to dispose of their used cooking oil for a small fee has been established. City of Mount Gambier operational services director Daryl Sexton said council encouraged all residents to thoughtfully dispose of their used and unwanted cooking oil. “If cooking oil is put down the drain it can clog up pipes, as well as cause problems at the Finger Point Wastewater Treatment Plant,” Mr Sexton said. “If poured straight onto the ground, the oil can potentially contaminate groundwater, the source of Mount Gambier’s drinking water.” Small amounts of oil can be soaked up with a paper towel and put into a home compost or green organics bin. However, larger volumes can now be taken to the waste transfer centre. “Residents can recycle their cooking oil for just 25c per litre at the station,” Mr Sexton said. “Once the oil is collected, it will be picked up by a contractor and taken to a composting facility, where it is mixed with other feedstocks and turned into compost. “This is an environmentally friendly and sustainable way to recycle cooking oil and a safe, convenient and cost effective method for our residents too.” Reserve your booking Phone 8721 2574 or email email@example.com 662735 RECYLE: Aaron Izzard recycles cooking oil at the Mount Gambier Waste Transfer centre.
