Used cooking oil and other grease accumulated while cooking should not be poured or washed down the drain. These can clog and damage sewer pipes, causing nasty overflows, messy spills on streets, and expensive clean-up costs. Save your pipes and recycle your used cooking oil instead. This service is free!
All collected cooking oil will be recycled into biodiesel fuel by Mahoney Environmental Solutions.
We know the tank can look a little yucky, but better the tank than your pipes at home! If you do not want to drop off your cooking oil, you can also throw it away in your garbage in a sealed container.
This tank is for cooking oil only - NO motor oil. (Motor oil can be recycled next to your cart. See sidebar on WM's website for details.)
Prevent spills! Let us know if the tank needs attention
If the tank is more than half full, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org or 425-587-3812 so we can arrange for the oil to be emptied. You can also contact General Biodiesel directly.
If you see that someone has left full oil containers on the ground, please let us know at email@example.com or 425-587-3812 so we can empty them into the tank to make sure they don't spill and make a mess on the parking lot. (If possible, we would be hugely appreciative if you could please empty any containers of cooking oil into the tank to save staff from making a special trip. We also don't monitor our hotline on weekends, so if you encounter this on a weekend it would be extra helpful!)
