Reminder of Two Upcoming Recycling Events

As the outdoor activities start to wind down, you may find you have a need for some extra storage space to  store all the new water toys you’ve accumulated over the summer.  If you have some no longer used appliances hanging around taking up valuable space, why not consider gathering them up along with any other scrap metals, batteries, and tires and disposing of them at no charge during the Special Recycling Event being held on Saturday, October 9th from 9:00 am until 3:00 pm at the Tyee Educational Complex on 188th street. Refrigerators and freezers will also be accepted with payment of a $20 disposal fee per item. This event is open to all King County Residents.

Then, just in time to assist  getting rid of all the yard waste that is generated from fall storms – the City of SeaTac will host the annual Fall Yard Debris Collection Event at the Tyee Education Complex on Saturday, October 23rd from 9:00 am until 3:00 pm.  The event site will accept up to 3 vehicle loads per household of yard organics which includes grass, leaves, branches and prunings. Please note that rocks, sod, dirt or materials larger than 4 inches wide and 8 feet long will not be accepted.  The Yard Waste Collection Event is open to Citizens of SeaTac only, Proof of Residency is required.

These (mostly) free events are being produced the City of SeaTac in partnership with Washington State Dept. of Ecology; King County Solid Waste Division and the local Hazardous Waste Management Program in King County. We recommend that you mark these events on your calendar so that you don’t miss the opportunity to take advantage of these beneficial services!
