Aerosols and Cooking Oil

    What is the correct way to dispose of aerosols (deodorant or hairspray) and also cooking oil?

    I thought empty aerosols were for recycling, but I recently downloaded the Greyhound app and it says they're not allowed in any bin. In contrast, several other companies list them as suitable for recycling.

    Also, used cooking oil from a deep fat fryer - what are you supposed to do with it? This is a new issue for me as I'm recently living with family who use one.

    I thought I had replied to this weeks ago but it must not have posted. Thanks for your response!

    Recycling centre is the only option? I have no way of getting there so that's a shame as it will he an ordeal to organise.

    Can anyone explain why Greyhound would say no to aerosols in all bins when others say they're fine for recycling?

    There is no standardised agreement on what is and isn't accepted as recycling. Some companies accept glass in the recycling bin and others don't.

    It's not so much that they don't accept it for recycling, but that they don't accept it full stop. Not allowed in domestic waste bin either.
