New Recycle Fest Event coming soon

In order to provide new opportunities for residents to recycle, the City is updating the annual Clean Sweep events with a new name and a new focus. At Recycle Fest, you will be able to recycle items that don’t normally go in your recycle bin. Bring the Styrofoam you have been saving, as well as the bicycle that your children out-grew many years ago. If you recently remodeled your home, you will be able to bring that old toilet, carpet and roofing material to recycle.
Recycle Fest will be free for all Shoreline residents. Proof of residency will be required. Note that only pick-up trucks or smaller vehicles will be allowed to enter. If you are hauling items on behalf of a neighbor or want to bring a trailer, call (206) 801-2455 for approval prior to the event. Garbage and yard waste will not be accepted. Check the event flyer coming in the mail for acceptable items.
Recycle Fest is sponsored in cooperation with the King County Solid Waste Division, the Local Hazardous Waste Management Program in King County and the Washington State Department of Ecology. For more information, contact the Shoreline Customer Response Team at (206) 801-2700.

Shoreline Community College has a plan to cut nearly $3.1 million from the 2011-12 budget.

From the Shoreline Community College website:

At an all-campus meeting on Wednesday, April 6, 2011, Shoreline President Lee Lambert labeled the plan a “final draft plan” that includes some impacts to 36 positions. Of that number, 11 faculty members are identified for reduction-in-force proceedings along with two retirements and two contract non-renewals. Three administrators would be laid off, two positions are being downgraded, one vacant position eliminated, one reduced time and one shifted to non-state funds. For classified employees, there were no layoffs, but seven vacant positions are slated for elimination, four reduced time and one retirement.
