The city will hold its fall recycling event from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 30 at the Mercer Island Community and Event Center parking lot at 8236 SE 24th St.
Residents are invited to safely dispose of old equipment, electronics (no TVs, monitors and computers), appliances and other household items. Paper shredding will be offered onsite for sensitive materials. Due to supply shortages, discounted rain barrels and compost bins will not be available this year.
Donations to the city’s food pantry are also accepted at the event in the form of grocery store gift cards.
COVID-19 protocols are in effect and residents are advised to pack their items for swift and easy removal from their vehicle.
