Letters | Keep Cedar Falls transfer station open

The plan for closing the Cedar Falls Recycling Center at the end of this month has just come to my attention.

In February, we will no longer be able to take our recyclables there.

This has happened so quickly and so quietly, except for one small sign inside the King County Recycling Center, that one may assume that the public’s input may not have been welcomed. It hasn’t been in any paper that I’ve noticed. There isn’t another place close that we can take our recyclables to, and I feel this would be a great disservice to the Valley, not to mention adding all that to our landfills, just when we’ve been convinced that recycling is good for our environment.

I have sent an email to Dow Constantine’s office, www.kingcounty.gov, phone number (206) 263-9600 and (ask) all the folks in the Valley who think this service is a valuable one, to also contact Mr. Constantine’s office.

At the very least, there should be a conversation regarding the closing.
