Valley Special

Carnation Spring Cleanup/Special Recycling Collection Day is May 6

   On Saturday, May 6, the Public Works Department of the city of Carnation will sponsor their Special Recycling Collection/Spring Cleanup Day.

   The public works crew and contractors will set up collection stations at Tolt Middle School along Highway 203 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. (or until full). The event is open to all Valley households, including unincorporated King County, to bring recyclables that are usually difficult to recycle.

   Residents can bring the following household (not commercial) recyclables. Stations will be in this order, so load your vehicle in reverse order: Reusable household goods for St. Vincent de Paul; refrigerators and freezers ($10 fee each, $15 for larger appliances and air conditioners); major appliances; scrap metal (no TVs, light fixture ballasts, or computer monitors); plastic plant pots and styrofoam loose packing fill (in a bag); vehicle batteries; tires, first 4 passenger tires free; used motor oil and filters; antifreeze.

   No garbage, other plastics, wood paint, cleaning products, or toxics. For more information or to volunteer to help, contact Cecelia Boulais, Snoqualmie Valley Recycling Coordinator, at 425-788-1185.
