In honor of both Earth Day and spring cleaning, you might be interested in two events next weekend:

(Watch your docs get shredded! WSB photo from April 2013 event)
FREE SHREDDING ON SATURDAY: Next Saturday (April 26th) at C & P Coffee Company (5612 California SW), 9 am-noon, Roger Steiner of co-sponsors a free shredding event. Here’s a page full of information on what to shred and what not to shred. (C&P and IHWS are both WSB sponsors.)

FREE RECYCLING ON SUNDAY: Then on Sunday (April 27th), it’s the next Fauntleroy UCC Church (9130 California SW) Recycle Roundup, 9 am-3 pm, with a long, long list of items accepted by 1 Green Planet at no charge (the church’s Green Committee, which organizes this popular event twice a year, will accept free-will donations). See the list here.


  1. I see that the recycling list says they won’t take televisions but they will take computer monitors. I don’t remember that before and the distinction is minor from a recycling standpoint.

  2. There’s also the drug “take-back” at the West Seattle precinct. It’s a good place to take your outdated/unused prescription meds.

  3. They haven’t sent an announcement of that but we saw a billboard. Change from in the past, when there was plenty of advance warning, but we’ll publish a standalone notice soon … thanks! – TR

  4. PSPS – We’ve verified that this is a change – while 1 Green Planet welcomes TVs dropped off at its facilities, it’s not taking them at drives like this any more.
