Did you know you shouldn’t dump used cooking oil down the drain? That’s because oil solidifies inside pipes and can cause major issues (think: back-ups in home plumbing, sewage spills, overflows onto streets, and foul odors in homes + communities).
Enter: City of Lakeland’s oil disposal program Cooking Oil Recycling Effort (C.O.R.E.).
All Lakelanders need to do is collect cooled cooking oil in a C.O.R.E.-provided jug and take it to a Cooking Oil Recycling Effort station for proper disposal. Protect my pipes.
