Cooking Oil Suspension at all Snohomish County Facilities

Cooking oil recycling and disposal is temporarily suspended at all Snohomish County Solid Waste facilities, effective immediately. The pause in collection is due to new traceability guidelines with the current vendor for this service, meaning any  oil collected needs to be tracked for its exact origin. Public collection and drop off points don't meet this requirement. 

The county is working to set up a new vendor to continue the service in the coming weeks. Until cooking oil recycling is reinstated, residents are advised to solidify used cooking oil using a commercial oil solidifer or stearic acid before disposing of it in household garbage. 

Snohomish County Solid Waste is committed to resuming the service and will notify residents when the temporary pause is over.
