Check Out (Really) These Tools


Check out this great piece on the 2011 Seattle Neighborhood Waste Reduction Rewards project...

The shelves are filled with circular saws, power drills and more types of hammers than I ever knew existed. But this is no hardware store. I’m in North Ravenna at the city’s newest tool library, where members will be able to check out tools for free after it opens Jan. 19.

CleanScapes Opens Gilman Village Store


The garbage hauler for most Issaquah neighborhoods, Seattle-based CleanScapes, is also a tenant at Gilman Village.

CleanScapes renovated a space in the iconic retail center for a customer service center and store. CleanScapes President Chris Martin and Issaquah Mayor Ava Frisinger cut the ribbon on the facility Sept. 21.

Customers can stop at the center — 317 N.W. Gilman Blvd., No. 22 — to ask questions about service and drop off difficult-to-recycle items, such as cellphones.

CleanScapes also offers items meant to help consumers reduce waste — such as stainless-steel water bottles and cloth diapers — and products made from recycled materials, including a bike messenger bag fashioned from inner tubes.

The company started garbage and recycling service in Issaquah on July 1.
