Spring Cleaning? FREE weekend recycle event takes almost everything

Got some spring cleaning to accomplish? Need to get rid of those ‘not-easy-to-get-rid-of’ items like old boxy TVs? This upcoming event might be just the ticket.

The Snoqualmie Indian Tribe and the City of North Bend are partnering to provide a free recycling event for household materials from King County Residents.

The event will take place on Saturday, April 28, 2018 from 9 AM to 3 PM at the Mount Si High School Freshman Campus at 9200 Railroad Avenue, Snoqualmie WA, 98065.

The service providers participating in the event will accept:

  • Scrap metal and appliances
  • Propane tanks and porcelain
  • Refrigerators, freezers and air conditioners
  • Electronics, TVs and phones
  • Fluorescent bulbs and tubes
  • Petroleum products
  • Tires
  • Lead acid and household alkaline batteries
  • Clothing and household items

“We share the environment we live in, what affects one of us affects all of us,” said Jolene Williams, Snoqualmie Tribal Chairwoman. “The lessons passed down by our Elders tell us that we must be good stewards of the land. This recycling event helps by providing an opportunity to properly dispose of trash and waste that might otherwise be dumped inappropriately. Our cooperation with King County and the City of North Bend helps to protect our land, air and watersheds.”

[The event is sponsored by the Local Hazardous Waste Management Program in Kind County, the King County Solid Waste Division and the Washington State Department of Ecology.]
