Islands Clean Up

Join us Saturday, April 23rd for the Annual Great Islands Cleanup.

The Great Islands Clean-Up is back in person this year! Come join us on Saturday, April 23rd from 10 am – 2 pm.

Lautenbach Recycling staff is excited to volunteer once again for the Annual Great Islands Clean-up, banishing litter from our beautiful beaches and roadsides of San Juan Island. This year’s theme, All Hands On Deck, celebrates our collaborative efforts as a community to keep our waterways, beaches and roads plastic and litter free.

Environmental and community health is at the core of our foundation at Lautenbach Recycling, and the Great Islands Clean-Up is a fun way for us to pitch in with our island neighbors. Plus, it’s a great way to celebrate Earth Day weekend!

Lautenbach Recycling has a special connection to San Juan, having managed the San Juan Transfer Station since 2014. We partner with San Juan County, San Juan Sanitation, and the Town of Friday Harbor to provide materials management for San Juan Island residents and businesses. We’re open to the public for self-haul recycling, garbage, and green yard waste and we have leveraged our equipment, over 30 years of experience, and individualized customer service into a cost-effective, Recycle First philosophy for the island.

To celebrate we’re sponsoring live music, donuts and coffee and donating raffle prizes at the after-party! Come see us there at San Juan Island Brewing Co. starting at 3pm and enjoy $1 beers for Great Islands Clean-Up participants and the presentation of the Good Steward Awards.

We can’t wait to join islanders and visitors alike in cleaning up this beautiful location.
