Maybe you guys wouldn't need that new 4 billion pound "super sewer" if you just cleaned out your sewers more often so they weren't blocked. ;)

WRT to fatburgs... Has recycling used frying oil not caught on over there? In many parts of the US restaurants no longer pour used frying oil down the drains (it was always illegal but many people did it anyway because the likelihood of getting caught was miniscule) because they can actually sell the used oil to recyclers. They then make bio-diesel out of it.

Al Jazeera had a nice article about the rise of biodiesel in America. Restaurant owners are happy because it used to cost them to dispose of used grease and oil but now they can actually sell it to recoupe some of their costs. Previously, unethical restaurant owners would illegally dump the oil down the drain where it would clog up sewer lines simply because they didn't want to pay to dispose of it legally. Now, they make money off of that old used oil which is refined into diesel fuel and used to power America's big rigs.

The grease has now become so valuable that "grease pirates" have popped up; it's where thieves steal the grease so they can sell it themselves to recyclers.

Yes, of course it has. In fact people are even stealing it to make illegal (untaxed) bio diesel.

Businesses are really regulated, but the 8 million people in London cooking at home, not so much.

As far back as I can remember, our family never poured oil or grease down the drain. We would reuse it until it went bad, then pour it into a jar and toss it in the trash.

pour it in a paper cup, let it harden, and put it out on the bird feeder!

What if it doesn't harden?
