Community Recycle Events & Programs

Lewis County is working with cities and communities to offer free recycling events and opportunities to properly dispose of certain materials. Here are the September 2021 events, and please see the chart below for additional events scheduled for later this fall.

The events are offered to Lewis County residents only, and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. If some recycling containers fill up on the day of the event, that particular recycling opportunity may be closed due to storage and space limitations. Every event will not necessarily offer the same recycling opportunities.

Check out the dates that are confirmed in the chart below, and click on the city or community under "Location" to see a flyer and rules about that specific event.

These events are being offered thanks to Lewis County, E-Cycle Washington, community partners, the WSU Lewis County Master Recycler Composter volunteers, and a grant from the Department of Ecology.
