Waste oils are ecotoxic substances and constitute an important part of household waste. The mixing of waste oils with water sources causes water pollution and damages the sewage systems and causes blockages. In addition, the production of biodiesel from waste oils makes it more important to collect waste oils at certain points and recycle them. In this study, it was aimed to evaluate knowledge, attitudes and behaviors of participants about waste oil management.
One hundred and twelve participants who applied to an Family Health Center in Maltepe district were evaluated and the data were collected by questionnaire method. Sixty seven percent of the participants were women, 58% were married and the median age was 33. Sunflower oil (87%) was the most commonly used oil for frying. Forty eight percent of the participants did not receive any information about waste oil management, 84% did not know the waste oil collection points and only 23% have given waste oils to the collection points. Being elder, female, married and having higher education level were the factors that affected positively the knowledge and behavior about waste oils. It is thought that increasing scientific and social studies on waste oil will improve the knowledge level and create positive behavioral changes.
