Marysville celebrates ‘Clean Sweep Week’ April 20-27

MARYSVILLE — The city of Marysville is working in partnership with various local businesses, churches and nonprofit groups to bring back “Clean Sweep Week,” a series of free activities to help residents get their spring cleaning off on the right foot, for the second year in a row, from April 20-27.

The first Saturday, April 20, will see the Community Shred-a-Thon run from 9 a.m. until noon, or as soon as the trucks fill up, in the Marysville City Hall parking lot, located at 1049 State Ave., where trucks will be shredding tax paperwork and other sensitive personal and financial documents.

This free event is designed to help citizens protect themselves from identity theft, and is sponsored by HomeStreet Bank, the North County Outlook, the city of Marysville, American Data Guard and the Marysville branch of Windermere Real Estate, which is also hosting PC recycling at the Shred-a-Thon.

There is a six-box limit, and those submitting documents must remain until theirs are destroyed. For more information, call 360-363-8086.

The Allen/Quilceda Watershed “AQWA” Team, Marysville Surface Water Management and other partners will be planting native trees and shrubs, as well as spreading mulch to nourish new plants and suppress weeds, on the Qwuloolt Estuary Restoration Project site by Harborview Park, located 4700 60th St. NE in Marysville, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. that same Saturday, come rain or shine. Volunteers should wear old clothes that they won’t mind getting messy. To register, contact Erin Martin by phone at 425-388-3464, ext. 4661, or via email at

Groups already sponsoring Adopt-a-Street stretches of road for litter control will be picking up their assigned areas. For more information about starting your own Adopt-a-Street, call Marysville Public Works at 360-363-8100.
