Used cooking oil bank scheme

Keep it Clear has helped make recycling of used cooking oil easier for domestic householders.

Initiatives have included establishing banks for the collection of used cooking oil at recycling centres across the region instead of it being poured down sinks and drains.

The trial scheme is now being operated by Thetford-based Living Fuels, a company which recovers used cooking oil and turns it into environmentally friendly bioliquid. This is used to generate carbon neutral electricity for UK homes and businesses.
