Beginning Monday, the City of Olympia will have nine additional pedestrian recycle containers available for public use throughout downtown Olympia.
Each new blue container will be conveniently located next to existing garbage cans, and will list the acceptable items for recycling in that can.
The new locations are:
- Franklin Street, between Fifth Avenue and Legion, in front of the YMCA.
- Washington Street and Legion Way, across from Sylvester Park.
- Fourth Avenue and Washington Street, in front of Emporium Hair.
- Fourth Avenue, between Jefferson and Adams Street, in the Artesian Well lot.
- Fourth Avenue, between Jefferson and Cherry Street, in front of Orca Books.
- Fourth Avenue and Capitol Way, on the northwest corner.
- Fifth Avenue and Capitol Way, on the southwest corner.
- Fifth Avenue and Washington Street, on the northwest corner.
- Washington Street, between Fifth Avenue and Legion Way, in front of the Performing Arts Center.
The new recycle containers were purchased by the City of Olympia and paid for in part with a Coordination Prevention Grant from the State Dept. of Ecology.
