Do you dump your used oil down the sink after you finished frying something or, even worse, deep frying something? Well, don't. Oil can do serious damage to your sink and pipes and everything else it comes in contact with on the way down. So, what can you do with your used oil? Some put it in a second container to dispose of properly but that can add up quickly as well. What do you do? Well, fortunately, we have these oil dump points in Yakima where you can bring your used oil to dispose of properly. Not down the drain, not down a manhole, and not over your neighbor's fence.

I found this specific one behind the Cottage Mart on the corner of 36th and Tieton. Yes, the same one that has churros on the menu.

This specific one is for used cooking oil only (no motor oil). No solids or garbage as well so you can't just toss your giant coffee can of used oil into it. You have to dump your oil, then dispose of the can or reuse to refill with oil for next time.

This is a service of SeQuential whose purpose is to collect, refind and refuel. You can find out more about who they are and what they're about from their website as well as it looks like you can request one of these dumping stations at your business. Might be worth reaching out. I'm not sure if they have a location finder (I couldn't find one) but I know of this one at 36th and Tieton.

    LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

    Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
