Once again, the Snohomish County Office of Energy & Sustainability will be hosting a FREE Earth Week Recycling Event and Climate Resiliency Showcase, on Saturday, April 27th, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. or until capacity is reached. It is held at the Evergreen State Fair Park’s West (Red) Parking Lot and provides residents with an opportunity to recycle hard-to-recycle items for free and learn about programs and initiatives focused on improving climate resiliency across Snohomish County government and beyond.

Clean your garage and purge the junk. You can bring all your hard-to-recycle items to the event for proper disposal or recycling. Accepted items include Styrofoam (clean and free from all tape and labels), fluorescent lightbulbs (limit 10 tubes per person), household batteries (dry cell, rechargeable, lithium), electronics (computers, TVs, cell phones, cords etc.), metal (scrap metal, appliances), and clean unmounted passenger and pickup truck tires. A full list of items accepted can be found here, Earth Day Recycling Event.

In addition to recycling services, attendees can explore educational booths set up by various county departments and organizations, including the Department of Conservation & Natural Resources, Public Works, Snohomish County Health Department, WSU Extension, and more. Attendees can engage with experts and learn more about climate resiliency efforts.
