Oil’s well that ends well in Warwickshire
Warwickshire residents are being urged to do something good for the environment and help reduce weighty water… | March 26, 2013
An estimated £15 million per year is spent on cleaning blockages caused by ‘fatbergs’ – large masses of fat and grease that build up through disposal of used cooking oil down drains. If sent to landfill, oils often leak, polluting local watercourses and harming wildlife.
But thanks to a scheme run by Warwickshire County Council, residents are able to recycle their waste oil at specially placed tanks, located at six of the county’s household waste recycling centres (Cherry Orchard in Kenilworth, Stockton, Bruton Farm in Stratford, Princes Drive in Leamington Spa, Hunters Lane in Rugby and Judkins in Nuneaton). All oil collected is recovered through a completely natural process into renewable electricity for UK homes and businesses.
