MI Recycling Event Saturday

In honor of Saturday’s Recycling Event on Mercer Island, here’s a recycled photo of the Mercer Island pipeline being laid across Lake Washington, 1956:

As this pipeline shows, we are expert at getting things we need to our homes. Saturday let’s take some things we’re done with and dispose of them in a responsible way. Batteries, porcelain toilets, scrap metal— they’ll take it all.

And bring a donation for the Mercer Island Food Pantry, while you’re at it.

9 am to 3 pm Saturday at the MI Boat Launch, 3600 E. Mercer Way.
