2020 Recycling Events

Each spring, summer and fall the City of Kent hosts a Recycling Collection Event that allows residents to dispose of recyclable items that are not normally accepted at the curb.  Instead of going to the landfill as trash, all items collected at the event will be reused or recycled!
