03/15/15 Spring Curbside Clean Up
03/31/15 Clean is community!
When the modern ecology movement began in the 1960's the idea of protecting the environment was largely a fringe idea, led by protestors carrying signs.
Decades later the ideas behind recycling, conservation, less pollution and caring for our world have finally come to the mainstream. Leading the way is a new store that just opened in Burien at 15858 1st Ave. South, The Recology Store.
Burien, WA – Recology CleanScapes officially opened a new recycling focused retail store and customer service center in the Five Corners Shopping Center in Burien Saturday. The new store and customer service center for customers served by Recology CleanScapes in the communities of Burien, Des Moines, and SeaTac offers opportunities for face-to-face customer service, the ability to drop-off hard to recycle items, and offers creative products and gifts designed to reduce waste while encouraging recycling.

The first day of 2015 marked the enactment of an ordinance banning Seattle residents from tossing food and food-contaminated compostable paper in trash cans. Starting July, a $1 fine will be tacked on a residential home’s garbage bill if a trash collector sees that a bin is at least 10 percent filled with food. For now, bins are marked with a red tag notifying owners of their dirty deed.
