City's annual spring recycling collection event is March 26
Recyclables will be accepted at the annual Mercer Island Spring Recycling Collection Event on Saturday, March 26, at the Island boat launch. The event will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 3600 East Mercer Way.
Only certain recyclables are acceptable, due to recycling regulations and environmental considerations. After the loss of state funding, a fee will now be charged for recycling televisions and computer monitors.
Suggested donations are nonperishable food with unexpired dates for the city's Youth and Family Services Food Pantry, or a cash contribution.
Mercer Island's new E-Cycle Washington location accepts computers, monitors, laptops and televisions for free. Computer accessories such as keyboards, mice and printers are accepted only at city recycling collection events. E-Cycle Washington is open for business Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at 7835 S.E. 30th Street.
For a complete list of accepted and restricted items and applicable fees, see www.mercergov.org. Information about E-Cycle Washington can be found at www.ecyclewashington.org or by calling the Mercer Island location at (206) 355-6885.
