The Cities of Merriam and Shawnee are once again collaborating on a community-wide recycling event on October 9 from 8-11 am in the Nations Holding Parking Lot (9001 W. 67th St., Merriam 66202). This event will provide an opportunity for residents to drop off a variety of items including consumer electronics, bicycles, latex paint, and old documents that will be securely and professionally disposed. Jeans and eyeglasses will also be collected. Most items will be recycled for free, but there will be a charge to recycle televisions and computer monitors. Donations are requested for document shredding, a portion of which will benefit the Merriam Parks, Recreation, and Community Center Foundation and the Shawnee Mayor’s Christmas Tree Fund. Bicycles brought to the event will be refurbished and redistributed to various community organizations by the City of Shawnee. This event is open to Shawnee and Merriam residents only. More information is available on the Merriam website.
