Recycle More! Tips and Free Compostable Bag Sample from King County
Fall is here, so it’s time to think about recycling your leaves and storm debris – and your food scraps!
If you don’t already have curbside yard waste service, now is a good time to subscribe. It's easy to sign up -- and you can recycle your food scraps and food soiled paper along with your yard waste. Start with delivery pizza boxes, fruit and vegetable trimmings and paper napkins.
Your garbage hauler will collect your yard waste and food scraps in the yard waste cart and it will be recycled into nutrient-rich compost that can be used in yards and gardens.
Receive a free compostable bag sample from King County to help you get started. King County residents outside the city of Seattle may request a free compostable bag sample by e-mail at email@example.com or by phone at 206-296-4466.
The Sikh Community recognized the KSD Refugee Transition Center at their Vaisakhi Day celebration earlier this month at the Kent ShoWare Center.

Congratulations to ten Kentwood High School students for being recognized in this year’s Letters About Literature contest sponsored by the Washington State Library and the Library of Congress.
This is a great opportunity for prospective teachers and educational staff to have the chance to meet principals, administrators and representatives from our schools, and inquire about open positions in the Kent School District.
KSD is fortunate to have many talented and highly skilled national board certified health professionals who are looking after the well-being of our students every day.
