The holiday season is a time of good cheer and presents, but all that gift-giving can generate an excess of cardboard boxes and Styrofoam. The City of Marysville is hosting a free post-holiday recycling collection from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 7, in the old City Hall parking lot, 1049 State Ave.
Marysville Sunrise Rotary and other community partners will help Marysville residents recycle unwanted cardboard, Styrofoam, foam peanuts and other packaging materials. That’s not all. Bring your natural Christmas tree for ‘tree-cycling’ into wood chips to spread in city parks and trails. Finally, 3R Technology will accept e-waste for recycling.
The event is free, with donations gratefully accepted for the Marysville Community Food Bank.
What you can bring:
- Clean Styrofoam (clean, dry, free of tape)
- Packing peanuts (in bags or boxes)
- Cardboard (please flatten boxes before arrival)
- Clear bubble wrap
- Clear plastic wrapping (clean and dry material only)
- Real bare Christmas trees (remove lights, wire, tinsel and ornaments)
- Flat screen TVs
- Computers, monitors, keyboards and mice
Thank you to these event partners: Marysville Sunrise Rotary, Waste Management, 3R Technology, Creation Caretakers of Marysville United Methodist Church. Everett Community College’s Students for Environmental Action, local Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops, and Marysville Community Food Bank.
