Are you frying your turkey this Thanksgiving? We definitely recommend it, yum! One important thing to remember is when disposing of the cooking oil, DO NOT dump the oil down any sink or flush it down the toilet. This can lead to clogging, bad smells, build up, trapping other things in your pipes… all around bad things for your plumbing. And this can lead to unnecessary sewer and drain cleaning.
Instead, we recommend taking your turkey fryer oil to a recycling location, which accepts all food and vegetable-based oils. Here are a couple suggestions:
