Why is it important to recycle your used cooking grease/oil?

Grease hardens and clogs pipes, which costs you money!  Doctors warn how too much cholesterol in your diet can clog your arteries. That same phenomenon can wreak havoc in your sewer pipes (see below)!! 

Remember to cook, scrape, pour and recycle!
