More ways Seattle residents can recycle

Plastic bottle caps

Screw plastic caps onto an empty plastic bottle and put in the recycling.

Metal bottle caps and plastic caps not attached to a bottle still go in the garbage.

Cooking oil

You can set up to two 1-gallon containers of used cooking oil out for free on your recycling day.

  1. Pour cooled oil into a 1-gallon plastic container with a tight-fitting, screw-on lid.
  2. Label the container with your name and address.
  3. Set the labeled container on the curb next to your recycling bin on your collection day.
