Waste Management observes three annual holidays: Thanksgiving, Christmas (Dec 25), and New Year's Day (Jan 1). All other holidays will not affect your collection schedule.

Weekday holidays will delay collection by one day for the remainder of the week. For example, if a holiday falls on a Thursday, Thursday customers will be collected on Friday and Friday customers will be collected on Saturday.

Cooking Oil Recycling

Ever wonder what to do with leftover cooking oil?

Recycle it for free at the local drop-off located at:

The North Kirkland Community Center
(north end of parking lot)
12421 103rd Ave NE

Questions? Call 425-587-3812 or email

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.
