Thought about that. It's clean peanut oil, not butter or bacon fat which would congeal in the pipes. City sewer, not a septic tank.

How does everyone here get rid of used cooking oil? Containers thrown in the trash?

Check your city's website. Mine says not to put used cooking oil (or engine oil) in the recycling container and cooking oil goes in regular trash. If you think it's worth the effort, you can also check your local recycling center to see if they take it to make biodiesel. Cooking oil is not considered harmful to the environment (at least in my area it isn't).

Thanks. My plan was to empty the peanut oil, then put the jug in the recycling bin.

Have both the Instant Pot and the Instant Air Fryer.

Use the Air Fryer daily
for toasting, fries. and the small pot pies.

Instant Pot for rice and soups. Great job on those.

Just me in the house, very handy.

I look at all things like tools. I don't need a hammer, but it comes in handy when I have to drive a nail. I use my airfryer multiple times a week, as a mater of fact I am air roasting some carrots right now to go into a stew I am making for dinner. I use my instant pot less frequenting, but it still gets used. I keep the airfryer on the counter and the instant pot in the cabinet.
I have pulled off several good meals with the instant pot. But last xmas, I cooked cheesecakes in it and they turned out great. Again, they are just tools.

The regular recycling in my town won't take glass anymore so I can put glass jars with oil in the trash and throw the plastic containers in recycling.

That's silly. Glass and metals are the only items you can truly recycle forever.

As to the Instant Pot, it can definitely replace your slow cooker. I like that you can brown your meat in it without dirtying up a skillet. Also replaces a rice cooker if you use one.
"Also replaces a rice cooker if you use one."

Not if you like rice.

Have not used either one, but the wife and daughters use the Insta-pot to make great yogurt. My wife just got one today from a close-out store and it does not have the yogurt button, so it may take closer watching to make good yogurt. Our daughter made an excellent venison dish in it.

I use my air fryer at least once a week and I think it does a great job on things like small Salmon filets, Beer Battered Cod, French Fries, Hash Brown patties, chicken wings, chicken strips, chicken thighs, tachitos, mini-tacos and a number of other things.
I keep it on the counter.
I have an Instapot and use it only periodically, mostly in the Winter when I haven't thawed something and don't feel like grilling in the cold.
