Residents reminded, recycle cooking oil

The City of North Bend encourages all residents to take advantage of the new option to recycle kitchen fats, oils and grease, part of the city's expanded residential recycling services provided by offered by Republic Services.

“With the upcoming holidays and the popularity of preparing deep-fried turkey and the subsequent need to dispose of the oil”, said Mayor Ken Hearing, “this new recycling service offered by Republic is a wonderful way to reuse our resources and keep greases and oils out of the City’s waste water system”.

City residents may recycle up to three one-gallon containers containing used fats, oils or grease per regular recycling pickup. Oils must be free of contaminants and placed in clear, screw-top plastic containers. All containers should be labeled with the residents' name and address and placed next to the recycling cart for pickup.
