Saturday, October 19, 10am to 2pm
Our Redeemer’s Lutheran Church Parking Lot – 25th Avenue NW & NW 85th Street

Electronics Recycling
Living Green Technology will be on hand to take your old electronics.  Go here to see what electronics will be accepted.

The recycling service is FREE, but donations will be accepted to support the Ballard P-Patch.

What can you do after you’ve purchased a new item and the interior packing is a huge amount of styrofoam? We will have a truck on hand to collect your CLEAN packaging styrofoam to take to Styro-RecycleStyrofoam must be clean and dry and all tape and labels must be removed.  Packing peanuts (in a bag or box with a lid) and bubble wrap also accepted.

The recycling service is free, but donations will be accepted to help offset the cost of hiring the truck to collect and remove the styrofoam; funds raised above the cost of the truck will go to support the Ballard P-Patch.

Clothing Drive
Take your gently used clothing and shoes for donation to The Bridge Care Center and Mary’s Place.  They are looking especially for seasonal clothing (fall and winter). The Bridge Care Center is a drop-in center for men and women experiencing homelessness and displacement in the Ballard area. Their work is about acknowledging that every person has value and meaning, and deserves to be treated with dignity. Mary’s Place empowers homeless women and children to reclaim their lives by providing shelter, nourishment, resources, healing and hope in a safe community.

Prescription eye glasses will be collected for the U District Lion’s Club and  the UW Eye clinic. Glass frames are expensive and these will be re-purposed for people in need.  Prescription eyeglasses only:  they cannot accept sunglasses, bifocals, or over-the-counter readers.  They will take prescription readers.
