The city of Kent’s summer recycling event is set for 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, June 5 at Kent Phoenix Academy, 11000 SE 264th St.
Each spring, summer and fall, the city hosts a recycling collection event to dispose of items that are not normally accepted at the curb. Instead of going to the landfill as trash, all items collected at the event will be reused or recycled.
Items that will be accepted include batteries, Styrofoam, electronics, cardboard, concrete, asphalt, rock and brick, mattresses, box springs, futons, textiles, household air conditioners and dehumidifiers, porcelain toilets and sinks, scrap metal, propane tanks, tires, yard debris and scrap wood, shredding and more.
Please note that there are caveats to these categories of items and not everything in each category will be accepted.
Check the city’s website for the full, itemized list to make sure your recyclable items will be accepted.
