Sandburg-DCS Elementary's Green Team hosted a recycling event on May 6.

1 Green Planet came and collected about 12,000 pounds of electronics, computers, appliances, grills, mowers, bikes, etc. It was amazing!

While the recycling was a free service, the Green Team collected donations for Hopelink's End Summer Hunger Program, to help feed kids during the summer months when they don't get free or reduced lunch from school. We collected $760!

I would like to say "thank you, Kirkland" for doing the right thing: recycling and supporting Hopelink.

If you didn't make it to our event, here are a couple of good resources for recycling items that can't go to the curbside: King County: www.kingcounty.gov, click on the link to "environment" for recycling tips and events; or contact the City of Kirkland's Recycle hotline: 425-587-3812 or email Recycle@Kirklandwa.gov
