Have you been deep frying your turkeys? Many people swear that the meat is juicier, and its skin is crispier.
Three to five gallons of oil is needed, and with quantities that large, it begs the question, "what do I do with all that oil after the turkey is done?!"
Never Down the Drain
Please keep in mind to never place any oil/fat down your drain. Not only does it clog your pipes, but according to the Water Reclamation Services of Akron it can also "build up in drains and sewer lines causing blockages resulting in sanitary sewer overflows into homes and waterways."
Three to five gallons is a great deal of oil. If you can't strain and re-use it, you'll need to dispose of it someway. Darling International is one business that you can call 216-351-3440 to check on pricing for oil disposal.
Another thing you can do is to store it over the winter and bring it to our Household Hazardous Waste Recycling Center once we open in June. We accept cooking oil from Summit County residents from home use. We ask that you use five gallon or smaller containers and that you bring no more than 15 gallons at a time.
