Here for you some ideas on how you could recycle your used home oils while doing some DIY :

There is no limit to the number of times you can reuse old cooking oil, but you should watch for signs of degradation, such as a murky appearance, foam, or an odor that’s off.
When is ready to go, check with your council for a way to dispose it or put in a sealed container outside the bin.
