We are excited to host another Hard-to-Recycle Event for the community as part of EAS+Y Earth Action Month. We will be accepting the following hard-to-recycle items on Saturday, April 27th, from 9-4pm at the Evergreen Lutheran Church in South Evergreen. We will also be hosting Evergreen’s first Zero Waste Refill Pop-up Store, where you can bring your own container to fill up with fragrance-free laundry detergent, dishwashing detergent, dish soap, and general household cleaner for a fee.
