More shredding! More recycling! West Seattle Junction event next month

(WSB photo from June 2018 recycle/reuse/shred event)

If you missed one or both of the recent West Seattle shredding and recycling events – good news – the West Seattle Junction Association is presenting a recycle/reuse event, with shredding, on June 29th! Like the one last year, it’ll be in the Junction parking lot off 42nd SW south of SW Oregon. Just show up between 9 am and 1 pm – after consulting the list of what will and won’t be accepted.

    The piece I’m most excited about is the STYROFOAM RECYCLING. We have styrofoam stocked up for a trip to the styro-cycle center near IKEA. Can’t wait to get this off our hands.

      For future styrofoam recycling- Seattle Lighting accepts styrofoam at all of their locations. I take mine to the one just over the bridge on Hanford. It’s a great resource and I don’t think very many people know about it!

      @Mercymoi: Styro Recycle isn’t near Ikea anymore. They moved further south in Kent. I made a trip down there about a month ago. I didn’t know about Seattle Lighting until a few days ago. That’s certainly more convenient!

    Is there a cost or donation to be made for shredding

    • WSB May 21, 2019 (8:17 pm)

      This event is all free to users, with presenting/sponsoring/participating businesses and agencies covering the costs. For example, the shredding is sponsored by West Seattle Windermere.

    Re: Foam – you can schedule a special (but free) pickup from SPU now:

      Awesome! Driving my styrofoam recycling somewhere really seems ironic.

    I just read the list.  The picture from last year shows a car seat.  One of the NO NO Items is car seats. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
