What happens if you throw away oil?
When you pour cooking oil down the drain or garbage disposal, it eventually solidifies and clogs the pipes. This can damage your kitchen pipeline or the local sewer mains of your city.
How do you dispose of engine oil and water?
Oil that has been mixed with water can be recycled if the water is removed, which you can do a couple of ways. Since water and oil don’t mix, the first step to getting this mixture into a recyclable form is to let them separate. Water will naturally go to the bottom and the oil will float to the top.
