Fall Recycling Event: Clear the Clutter-Recycle It!
KENT, Wash. – October 7, 2013 – The annual Fall Recycling Collection Event will take place on October 19, at Russell Rd. Park, 24400 Russell Road, Kent, from 9:00 am-3:00 pm. Residents are invited to bring those items that are not easily recycled at the curb including appliances, toilets, propane tanks, and up to 3 file-sized boxes per vehicle of documents to shred.
Residents may also bring batteries and electronics other than computers or TVs, as these can be recycled free of charge, year-round at E-Cycle Washington designated collection sites.
Concrete, rocks, asphalt & brick will be accepted at the event. It’s suggested that these be placed on a tarp, plastic sheet or in buckets to speed up unloading. Tires and petroleum products will be collected as well. In addition, the V&G StyroRecycle truck will be there to collect Styrofoam blocks and peanuts.
WestSide Baby staffers will be on site to collect children’s car and booster seats. Seats less than six years old will be placed back into circulation for reuse. Seats not meeting safety standards will be dismantled and recycled.
