We will have a kick off for this event April 20 at the Community Dinner. 50 flower pots, green cleaning kits and planting kits for kids will be given away to those who sign up an elder’s yard for some TLC on April 21. Two elder yards will be randomly selected at the Community Dinner.
Join us on the 21st at the Youth Center at 8:30 and signup for a project (if you didn’t sign up beforehand), have a coffee and some eats, and go to work on shining up Swinomish!
This is a rain or shine event, so please come with appropriate clothing!

Metal Only Dumpster
Please see the map for the locations of dumpsters and note that there will be a METAL ONLY dumpster near the basketball court as well as a household trash dumpster at that location.
NEW! Mixed Recycle Dumpster
We will have a mixed recycling dumpster at the Hat Pavilion parking lot near the E-Recycling Truck. The mixed recycling dumpster will be at this location on a trial basis for a few months- please put only recyclables in this dumpster-NO TRASH. If the community helps support recycling by sorting out and putting only recyclables in this dumpster we will be able to leave it for the long term. Kids know how to recycle ask them to help out! Reduce your garbage bill and save our resources by reducing, reusing and recycling!
