The City of Mercer Island is Holding Their Annual Recycling Event – Spring 2018

In April, Mercer Island’s Conservation & Sustainability Department is holding its Annual Recycling Event for Spring 2018. This sustainability event offers safe disposal of old equipment and household items that might be cluttering up your home and offers an excellent resource to purge your home of all items you’ve been meaning to get rid of for years!

Highly discounted rain barrels will also be available, for $25 each – though supplies are limited.

The city wants to note that MOTOR OIL, FILTERS & ANTIFREEZE will no longer be accepted at this event, but you can take these materials to the City’s Public Works Shop MON-FRI from 7:00am-3:00pm (located behind City Hall).
