The Recycling Collection Event is a twice-a-year event that allows Kirkland residents to dispose of recyclable items that are not normally accepted during weekly recycling collection service or through product stewardship programs. Instead of ending up in the landfill if thrown away as trash, all items collected at the event will be recycled. Funding is provided by King County Solid Waste Division and Local Hazardous Waste Management Program in King County.
