With the holiday season in full swing, the City of El Paso Environmental Services Department would like to remind residents to recycle right.
Starting Saturday, November 28, El Pasoans will be able to get rid of their used cooking oil at any of the four Citizen Collection Stations (CCS) conveniently located around the city.
Citizen Collection Station Locations
1034 Pendale (East)
121 Atlantic (West)
4501 Hondo Pass (Northeast)
2492 Harrison (Central)
The Citizen Collection Stations will be closed for the Thanksgiving holiday on November 26, but will resume normal operation on Saturday, November 28. Regular operating hours for the Citizen Collection Stations are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.
The collection stations also accept household trash, bulky items, tires (without rims), used electronics, and household hazardous waste. They are open to all residential solid waste customers who bring a recent water bill and I.D.
Citizens will NOT need to provide a water bill to drop off cooking oil.
The CCS will not accept cooking oil from businesses or commercial customers.
The Thanksgiving holiday also means more waste for many in El Paso. ESD would like to remind residents to recycle right by placing paper, plastics, and metals (aluminum and tin) in their blue bin; the items should be free of food or liquid. If your blue bin fills up, you can take your excess recyclable material to your nearest Citizen Collection Station – you will not need a water bill to recycle these items.
