Curbside collection of used motor oil was first offered to Meridian residents during May 1999. In 2006, consumed cooking oil was added to the program. Meridian is the only city in the Treasure Valley to offer used cooking oil recycling to its residents.


During the third quarter of 2013, residents recycled 833 gallons of used oil collected from approximately 463 residents. Oil recycling continued to grow through the remainder of summer, but started tailing off in September as winter approached.
