King County to help you clean up

King County residents can bring their old tires, car batteries, reusable household appliances and other hard-to-recycle items to a special recycling event on Saturday, August 19 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Inglemoor High School in Kenmore.
   Recycle old car, truck or marine vessel batteries. Regular household batteries will not be accepted. Styrofoam, in "peanut" form only, will be accepted if completely secured in a closed box or bag. Up to six car or motorcycle tires, with a maximum inner diameter of 18.5 inches and rims removed, can be turned in. Scrap metal such as car parts, lawnmowers and bicycles will be accepted, after all fluids and tires have been removed.
   Working appliances and household items such as furniture, toys, books, sporting equipment, area rugs, beds, stain-free mattresses, and clothing (with "garage sale" stickers removed) will be accepted for charity, if in good working condition and undamaged.
   Inglemoor High School is located at 15400 Simonds Rd. NE. From Bothell Way (SR 522) head south on 68th Avenue N.E. (Juanita drive). Turn left on Simonds Road at stoplight by Inglewood Golf Course. Inglemoor High School is at the top of the hill on the left.
