Ready, Set, Recycle – For FREE!

Julie-W-May-Recycle-ImageI’ve been going through a major overhaul of my office.  It’s been taking me a while, and it has resulted in quite a few items I need to find new homes for, or just plain recycle.  It can be a hassle to find a convenient place to take many of these things, but I have a solution for this problem! My office, Windermere Real Estate on Mercer Island, is hosting our annual recycle event in a few weeks – and it’s a totally FREE event!

The recycle event is scheduled for Saturday, June 11th, 10am – 2pm. It’s held right in our office parking lot and there will be a station for recycling old electronics, appliances, batteries, ink toner cartridges, Christmas tree lights, and medical equipment. Then there will be a station to bring your old bikes and bike parts. And then there will be a station to securely shred your old documents. How’s that for the trifecta of recycling?!

Click here for more details. If you have any questions about the event, please email me at Julie.wilson@windermere.com.

PS– We’ll also be accepting voluntary donations for Mercer Island Youth and Family Services at this event.  They are our Windermere Foundation grant partner.

Free Recycle Event Saturday June 6th, 2015

One of my favorite books of late is Marie Kondo's The Life-Changing Magic Of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art Of Decluttering and Organizing. It's given me a whole new perspective on my home, what I choose to keep and why (does it "spark joy" – if not, it needs to go!). If you have read Ms. Kondo's book and have been decluttering too, you may be wondering what you should do with those items that do not bring you joy. 

Well… my office is hosting a free recycle and document shredding event on this Saturday, June 6th.  It will be held right in the office parking lot.  In addition to the appliance, metal and electronic recycling, this year there will be an organization on hand to recycle clothing and other cloth products! Plus, you can bring boxes of papers that you need shredded and watch them be shredded right there.

All the recycle event details are below. Click here for directions to Windermere Mercer Island. Give yourself a spark of joy by removing those unwanted items from your home once and for all, for free.
