Scottish Water urges responsible disposal

With the ‘season of goodwill to all’ around the corner, Scottish Water is asking customers in Dundee and Angus to extend that feeling to our feathered friends.

Customers are encouranged to dispose of cooking fats, oils and grease responsibly.

Over time cooking fats and oils poured down the sink or drain can cause sewer chokes, sewage discharges, pumping station failures and damage to the environment.

It is important that families dispose of cooking fats responsibly by putting it in a sealable plastic container first and then bagging and binning them with their household refuse.

Animal fats and meat juices can actually harm our feathered friends and therefore such kitchen scraps should not be used to feed winter birds.
