    How do I discard STALE olive oil.

    It was in a jar in my bathroom for 2 years.

    It smells stale and I am not rubbing that on my skin!

    Check with your county, all the county has a recycling facility that take cooking oil, it’s illegal to dump cooking oil in USA.

    Fryer Oil Poses Environmental Risks – SeQuential

    There are also lot of collection sites that take cooking oil you have to do a search to find the closest place near you.

    Really? that is news to me. So all this time, dumping in sink was wrong. I would just stop frying completley now.
    @Minion - do you follow same? going to collection site or call someone to collect.

    Someone i saw video, do not remeber exactly, putting avocado pit ( I guess) relives the fryer old. Brings its fresh color, and life back ..not sure. But I do not think its completely true.

    I quickly checked my local town oil collection. They take it only from restaurants, seems where they have large amount of oil.

    I store it in milk can and give it to the county recycling center they take it without any fee.

    Use this site to find a location that takes cooking oil

    Cooking Oil near zip code - Recycling Centers - Earth911.com

    Most of the automotive service centers will accept the cooking oil check with Walmart automotive center in your place.

    Oh no, it was never fried. I intended to use as moisturizer but stopped due to other skin issues. Now that I was clearing my bathroom, I realize I needed to chuck it.
