Never too soon to plan! Next ‘Recycle Roundup’: September 21

August 12, 2014 at 1:44 pm | In Environment, Fauntleroy, West Seattle news | 7 Comments

For so many people with so many recyclables that can’t be put out for curbside pickup, the twice-annual Fauntleroy Church “Recycle Roundup” dropoff events are highly popular. That’s why we’re sharing mega-early news of the date for the next one: 9 am-3 pm Sunday, September 21st, church parking lot @ 9140 California SW. See the newly updated “what they’ll accept” list here.

  1. FCC should urge 1Green Planet to accept more materials. Recycle styrofoam and mattresses on 8/23: http://your.kingcounty.gov/solidwaste/calendar/event-detail.asp?MaterialID=62&ID=2549 Batteries and CFLs can be taken to McLendon’s, So Seattle HHW, PSC in Georgetown or Total Reclaim/EcoLights in SoDo; Bartells, Lowes, Home Depot and IKEA take CFLs too. Find other location and other items on kingcounty.gov/whatdoidowith

  2. Would be awesome if King County sent out notice about such events – wouldn’t have known if not for your mention here. Will publish it to our White Center site. Thanks! – TR

  3. Still no TV’s, like the last one. But they will take “Computer monitors” which contain the very same components.

    Nevertheless, it’s a great service that I use every time!

  4. YEA! I have a “pile” building in the garage and I just said this past weekend, shortly we will see a notice on the blog about this event!
    PSPS, TVs can go to Goodwill in Burien, on 128th. I loaded mine up the last time they had this event, one trip to 2 locations and got everything done!

  5. Tvs and monitors aren’t the same:lots of old lead glass CRTs still out there. Search ECycleWashington: goodwill, St Vincent, best buy, total reclaim all recycle tvs for free under your manufacturer run Washington state electronics Stewardship program.

  6. Recyclers will see a couple of changes in Sept. that we think will help everyone. (1) Our “Green Ideas” tipsheet that we give out will have a standing column about how to get rid of things that 1 Green Planet cannot take. (2) 1 Green Planet has committed to take everything it approved for the poster so no more surprises when you arrive; if it’s on the “will take” list, 1 Green Planet will take it.
