Used Cooking Oil

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 and all collected cooking oil will be recycled into biodiesel fuel by General Biodiesel.

How to Recycle Used Cooking Oil in Kirkland

  1. Pour your used cooking oil into the collection tank located at the north end of the North Kirkland Community Center parking lot, 12421 103rd Avenue NE. (Drive past the building and enter the back parking lot.) The collection tank is unlocked 24 hours/7 days a week.
  2. Close the tank lid when you are finished.
  3. Take the container you brought your oil in home to recycle, reuse, or throw away.
