RESIDENTS will be able to dispose of their cooking oil safely thanks to new dedicated recycling facilities in Gourock.
Three cooking oil bins are now in place at Craigmushcat Quarry recycling centre, Broomberry Drive.
Cooking oil should never be poured down a drain as it can cause blockages but instead should be poured into a container and brought to the dedicated bins.
Inverclyde Council’s convener of environment and regeneration, Councillor Michael McCormick, said: “It was good to visit Craigmuschat and see the development of the recycling centre with more dedicated bins and areas making it easier for residents to recycle.
“As well as these new cooking oil bins, there is an engine oil tank on site as well as an area for fridges.
“I hope this encourages people across Inverclyde to keep doing what they can to cut down on waste and recycle properly. If we all continue to do our bit then it will go a long way towards reaching our recycling targets.”
The Craigmuschat site became a dedicated recycling-only centre at the start of October.
