Although part of Irwin Street will be closed to thru traffic due to the Sweet Auburn Festival, we will be holding our monthly recycling event.

Please inform the officer on duty that you are a recycler and you will be permitted to proceed to our location.

Bring old electronics, #6 styrofoam, paper for shredding* or recycling, latex paint, single stream recycling  (cardboard, tin/aluminum cans, paper, plastics 1-7, glass), metals, and textiles** to recycle from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Fees apply on some items. Visit our Community Recycling page for more information, directions, and accepted items.

Recycling is great, but I think that folks should take a closer look at USAgain, which is controversial for disturbing reasons. Reports going back a decade suggest that the for-profit company, to quote one TV news investigation, “... routinely pretended to be a charity so business owners wouldn't ask for rent on the bin space.” Worse, Danish prosecutors link USAgain to an alleged cult called the Tvind Teachers Group. Five leaders of this group are Interpol fugitives wanted in their native Denmark in connection with a multimillion-dollar tax-fraud and embezzlement scheme. * “Millions in Clothing Donations Diverted from Charity” — KIRO 7 Eyewitness News, Seattle; 2009: Pt. 1 http://tinyurl.com/cqlrt2q Pt. 2 http://tinyurl.com/mo8o84u The ‘Pt. 2’ video’s description box has more info.
