KIRKLAND,WA - The city of Kirkland is always looking for ways to do right by its residents and the environment we all share. On November 17th from 11am-1pm, it is partnering with General Biodiesel to host the first “Get out the Grease” recycling initiative for Kirkland residents.  Rather than dumping old cooking oil down the kitchen sink, which can lead to costly visits by the plumber, residents now have a new, free recycling resource at their fingertips – a public cooking oil drop off depot where every gallon collected will be transformed into low carbon biodiesel.

The “Get out the Grease” event and new oil collection depot will be located at the North Kirkland Community Center at 12421 103rd Ave NE, Kirkland, WA 98034.  All residents of Kirkland and the surrounding areas are encouraged to attend on Saturday, November 17th from 11am-1pm to recycle their used cooking oil, learn about other recycling opportunities offered by the city of Kirkland, and meet and greet representatives from the city of Kirkland and General Biodiesel. Additionally, General Biodiesel will be hosting a raffle for everyone who attends the event, with prizes including a personal deep fryer!

The new oil-recycling depot is a permanent fixture, open and available to the public 24/7. As everyone gears up for a holiday season full of cooking and fried foods, remember to dispose of the left over oil responsibly at a collection depot.
