Fauntleroy ‘Recycle Roundup’ on Sunday, but don’t bring TV’s

April 26, 2014 at 6:10 pm | In Environment, Fauntleroy, West Seattle news | 7 Comments

After our recent reminder about tomorrow’s Recycle Roundup at Fauntleroy Church – a popular twice-yearly dropoff event – sharp-eyed commenter PSPS noticed something new on the list of what will and will not be accepted: TVs. Judy Pickens confirmed that and shares this reminder:

You may have noticed (or more likely missed) that this Sunday’s Recycle Roundup at Fauntleroy Church will not be accepting televisions (CRT, LCD, or plasma). You can, however, bring computer monitors.

As a collector for the E-Cycle Washington program for environmentally responsible recycling, 1 Green Planet gets paid by manufacturers for TVs dropped off at its warehouse, not for community events such as the semi-annual roundup. The closest E-Cycler where you can drop off your derelict TV is Burien Goodwill (1031 SW 128th).

The Recycle Roundup is in the church parking lot, 9 am-3 pm tomorrow, 9140 California SW (map).

  1. Thank you for this tip! I have/now had a TV scheduled to go to this event! Its always VERY WELCOMED! And if you do plan on brining items, make sure to grab a bit of cash as a nice donation! TO me its well worth the donation to rid myself of all the things that break between events and I do not want to dump in the trash!

  2. I’ve had a TV for months that I’ve had no idea what to do with, so thank you!

  3. Doesn’t it say NO TV’s? Or am I misunderstanding something?
    .
    Anyway, the timing is just perfect for us. We were just looking at some old yard equipment and will happily be bringing it over tomorrow. Thanks, Fauntleroy UCC!

  4. Anyone know if they take microwaves? It says small kitchen appliances but I’m not sure if that includes microwaves.
