City of Kent offers free recycling event March 6 at Hogan Park

For items not accepted at curbside pickup



Residents can dispose of recyclable items not normally accepted at the curb during a city of Kent free event from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, March 6 at Hogan Park, 24400 Russell Road.

Safety guidelines for the event include wear a face covering, do not attend if you feel sick or have recently been in contact with anyone who is sick or has recently been tested for coronavirus, pack materials in your trunk or backseat so they are easy to unload and remain in your car until it is your turn – you may be asked to unload your own materials or staff may remove it from your trunk.

What you can bring:

• Appliances
