Cooking Oil and Grease

Drop off this household hazardous waste at the Recycle & Reuse Drop-off Center, where it will be safely disposed of, recycled or reused. 

If brought to the Recycle & Reuse Drop-off Center, oil must be in containers smaller than five-gallon capacity. [This is a one-gallon coconut oil bucket. Costco’s Kirkland salted peanuts come in a nice one-gallon metal container with plastic press-on lid that would work well for larger amounts of oil.]

Small quantities of oil can be can be mixed with kitty litter, doubled bagged, and then placed in your trash cart. You can also seal small quantities in a coffee can or similar container and place it in your trash cart.

Do not pour cooking oil or grease down the drain; it can clog pipes and the City’s sewer system, resulting in expensive repairs, foul odors and sewer overflows.


Drop off – household hazardous waste

The Recycle & Reuse Drop-off Center is open, by appointment only.

 Austin/Travis County residents can schedule a drop-off time.
