Next to Last Recyclefest Saturday

RecycleFest Saturday, 9-17-16, 9am to 3pm, Sears Rear Parking Lot, 15711 Aurora Ave N, 98133

With an expanding variety of local recycling options, and in anticipation of Recology CleanScapes’ customer service storefront that will accept some difficult-to-recycle items, the City of Shoreline will hold only two more RecycleFests—one in fall 2016, and the last event in spring 2017.

Shoreline’s RecycleFest offers residents the opportunity to recycle items, which would otherwise be difficult to recycle. Foam blocks and a variety of construction materials will be accepted, as well as bicycles in any condition, which will be donated to Bike Works.

RecycleFest is free for all Shoreline residents.

Event flyers providing a detailed list of accepted items were mailed to all residents. Bring the event flyer or your driver’s license with a Shoreline address as proof of residence.

Note that only pick-up trucks or smaller vehicles will be allowed to enter.

Trailers needed to be preapproved.
