Zero Waste Vashon (ZWV) is a group of Vashon Island neighbors working in partnership with King County to make our island a model green community by finding practical ways to recycle our waste stream into useful products. Working toward a zero-waste future, we can have revitalized soils, cleaner water, cleaner air, and locally sourced energy.

TIP OF THE MONTH

RECYCLE TEXTILES

If it’s too damaged for Granny’s, you can still recycle textile items, like clothing, bedding, shoes, stuffed animals, curtains, & area rugs. Place all fabric goods – DRY, free of mildew or contaminants – in the blue collection box at the transfer station designated for clothing.
