BARKING and Dagenham residents can recycle their used cooking oil at the Recycling and Reuse Centre, Frizlands Lane, Dagenham.
New tanks, which can hold 1,000 litres of oil, have been installed by Living Fuels, which convert into a clean fuel for generators to produce electricity.
One litre of used cooking oil can generate enough electricity to make 240 cups of tea, or run a dishwasher for three hours. A thousand litres could generate electricity to power an average home for a year.
Cllr Milton McKenzie, executive member for recycling, said: "The council is always looking at new ways to recycle and producing electricity from waste material, like cooking oil, is a great way to benefit the environment."
