Waste Management is dedicated to meeting all of our customer's needs efficiently and promptly. If your collection has been missed, we want to know about it!
If your container(s) were at the curb by 7:00 am and were not emptied, please report a missed collection by contacting our customer service at (800)592-9995 (Mon-Fri 7:00 am - 5:00 pm).
Holiday Cooking Oil Collection - Available 365 Days a Year
Where do you take your used oil? There is a FREE drop-off station (open 24/7) located at Les Gove Park, 910 9th ST SE, Auburn – just south of the water spray playground. Look for the cooking oil banner hanging on the fence and the black collection tank marked GENERAL BIODIESEL. Be sure to take your transport containers with you and leave nothing behind, (except your cooking oil in the tank!), so we can continue to offer this service for free to our residents. There are no restrictions on the amount you can bring to recycle.
