Borrow Event Recycling Bins
Attend a middle-school soccer game, and you're likely to see garbage pails overflowing with sport-drink bottles, water bottles and aluminum cans.
Thanks to a grant from the Washington State Department of Ecology, Thurston County now makes ClearStream event-recycling containers for the towns, cities, universities, colleges, and high schools of Thurston County.
The containers are foldable, lightweight metal frames with plastic lids. The frames hold clear plastic bags, so it’s obvious whether people are recycling or contaminating the container with trash. To borrow containers, contact your local organization listed below.
