    Cooking Oil Recycling

    Ever wonder what to do with leftover cooking oil?

    Recycle it for free at the local drop-off located in the parking lot at French Lake Dog Park (31531 1st Ave S).

    Please transport cool cooking oil in a plastic jug with a secure twist-on lid. Remember to use a jug that allows for easy pouring into the on-site collection tank. Please pour oil slowly and carefully into the on-site collection tank to avoid splatter, and take containers home to retain this free public service. (Empty jugs can be rinsed out and recycled at home.)

    Seattle-based General Biodiesel will collect and convert the cooking oils into eco-friendly, sustainable fuel.
