Shred NW is a National Association for Information Destruction AAA-certified shredding and recycling company, offering secure shredding service on site.

unfortunately cannot recycle at the curb.
Styrofoam is not recyclable in the regular recycling
because it can clog the recycling equipment, and it’s not easy to recycle. Only
special facilities can condense or recycle it, and in general it’s not a good
material to have. If it does appear, you can save space in your garbage and
keep it for Earth Day. Then it will be recycled into other plastic products or
turned back into crude oil for other uses.
tubes contain mercury vapor that’s harmful to people and animals. Before the
event, boxes for fluorescent tubes are available for free at the City Hall
