At our house, there is a small corner of our garage dedicated to items that we don't know how to dispose of properly. With spring cleaning upon us and 1 Green Planet on our side, we might just get 2 cars in the garage this season. 1 Green Planet is a new non-profit recycling organization. You can drop off items at their location in Issaquah at any time or schedule a recycling event for your neighborhood. Eastside events are currently being scheduled for Saturdays and Sundays through the summer and fall.This is a FREE service, although donations are encouraged. You can offload things such as: computers, printers, fax machines, VCR's lawn mowers (empty oil), exercise equipment, appliances (any size!), game systems, Christmas tree lights, car batteries, BBQ's, etc.
1 Green Planet participates in the Washington e-cycle program and is also a certified Microsoft refurbisher. Refurbished items and profits from metal recycling are directed towards local food banks and shelters. Everything is done locally.
If you would like to schedule an event for your neighborhood or have questions about what items can be recycled, contact Susan Principe or call 1-866-422-3755. What a brilliant idea. I think Steve will be jumping up and down with delight when he read this. ~j
