Hundreds of Comcast employees in Everett will be working at Forest Park and the Cascade Boys and Girls Club this Saturday.

Hundreds of Comcast employees from the call centers in Everett and Lynnwood will be cleaning up Forest Park in central Everett this Saturday. Its part of Comcast Cares Day. Here are the details…

On Saturday, April 26, more than 550 local Comcast employees and their families, friends and community partners will “make change happen” as they volunteer to improve Forest Park in Everett and the Cascade Boys & Girls Club as part of Comcast’s 13th Comcast Cares Day.

The Comcast call centers in Everett and Lynnwood have adopted Forest Park for their project. Forest Park is a 197-acre wooded area that is Everett’s oldest and largest park. It is home to the Swim Center, playground (including a water playground), picnic shelter, wooded trails and Animal Farm. Comcast’s projects will include forest planting, light pruning, weeding, trail work, garden bed clean-up, revitalization and beautification of this historic park.

Comcast Cares Day, which takes place each April during National Volunteer Month, is Comcast and NBCUniversal’s signature day of service and the nation’s largest single-day corporate volunteer effort

“We’re proud to partner with the City of Everett and the Boys & Girls Clubs to improve our community during our 13th Comcast Cares Day,” said Len Rozek, senior vice president of the Comcast Washington Region “The hard work of the many hundreds volunteers who will be donating their time to help make such a big difference in the lives of others is inspiring.”

Meanwhile, Comcast’s Everett field office has adopted the Cascade Club of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Snohomish County. More than 200 volunteers will help improve the Everett club with new paint, cleaned carpets, fresh landscaping and numerous other projects.

Two events next Saturday may prompt you to do some spring cleaning this weekend. Then get ready to recycle. Next Saturday there’s a huge electronics recycling event at McClain Insurance in south Everett by Costco and also a document shredding event at Mountain Pacific Bank next to Aquasox Stadium on Broadway.

First the Claudia McClain explains their electronics recycling event…

“We’ve received countless inquiries about upcoming electronics recycling events,” explains Claudia McClain. “We feel honored that our community appreciates this service, and we are excited to help make life easier for our neighbors!”

When: Saturday April 26th from 9:00am – 1:00pm

Where: McClain Insurance Services 10410 19th Ave SE Everett, WA 98208 (Just South of Costco)

A crew of helpers will stand ready to assist customers with unloading their recyclables to ensure a smooth traffic flow.

Desktop Computers (including monitors, mice and keyboards), laptops, tablets, TVs, cell phones and miscellaneous cables can be recycled FREE of charge. Simply drop them off at the event.

Printers, VCRs, DVD players, stereos, small microwaves and various other household electronics that are NOT covered under the Washington State program will be accepted for a $5 fee. At this time, washers / dryers, refrigerators and/or AC Units cannot be accepted.

In addition to electronics recycling, thanks to our event partners at Pacific Power Batteries, we are also able to accept old household, car, truck and boat batteries. Battery lead is one of the greatest recycling successes of our time: Over 98% of all battery lead can be recycled! The public is invited to bring end-of-life batteries to our event.

E-Cycling helps significantly in reducing the environmental impact of outdated technology. While consumers invest in technology upgrades, over 82% of rejected electronic devices fill up landfills and incinerators, releasing mercury, lead, cadmium and other harmful substances. Electronics recyclers such as event partner, E-Waste, LLC, disassemble each item into its components for re-use and thus significantly reduce the impact of tech waste around the world.
