To kick off Earth Month, the City of Everett is hosting a recycling collection pilot event for Everett residents on Saturday, April 1, starting at 9 a.m. and ending when capacity is reached or 3 p.m. The event will take place in Lot B of Everett Station, located south of 3201 Smith Ave.

“Recycling is such an important component of environmental sustainability, helping us to reduce waste and conserve non-renewable resources,” said Cassie Franklin, mayor of the City of Everett. “Events like this are just one way the City of Everett is working toward a greener and more sustainable future.”

For this event, the City of Everett will be accepting a variety of hard-to-recycle household items. Before attending, they recommend reviewing the full list of what will be accepted, which includes information on processing fees for items that are more expensive to recycle and volume limits..

The recycling collection event was made possible due to support from Everett’s Local Solid Waste Financial Assistance grant from the Washington Department of Ecology. This event is anticipated to divert approximately 35 tons of recyclable household items from the landfill.
