The Snoqualmie Indian Tribe is proud to partner with the city of North Bend to provide a free recycling event for household materials from King County residents.

The event will take place on April 28 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Mt. Si High School Freshman Campus at 9200 Railroad Avenue, Snoqualmie.

The service providers participating in the event will accept scrap metal and appliances; propane tanks and porcelain; refrigerators, freezers and air conditioners; electronics, TVs and phones; fluorescent bulbs and tubes; petroleum products; tires; lead acid and household alkaline batteries; and clothing and household items.

The event is sponsored by the Local Hazardous Waste Management Program in Kind County, the King County Solid Waste Division and the Washington State Department of Ecology.

“We share the environment we live in, what affects one of us affects all of us,” said Jolene Williams, Snoqualmie Tribal chairwoman, in a press release. “The lessons passed down by our Elders tell us that we must be good stewards of the land. This recycling event helps by providing an opportunity to properly dispose of trash and waste that might otherwise be dumped inappropriately. Our cooperation with King County and the city of North Bend helps to protect our land, air and watersheds.”

The Snoqualmie Indian Tribe is a federally recognized tribe in the Puget Sound region of Washington State. Known as the People of the Moon, Snoqualmie were signatories to the Treaty of Point Elliott in 1855. Snoqualmie Tribal enterprises provide over 1,700 jobs, and the tribe has donated over $1.5 million to nonprofit organizations in the Snoqualmie Valley since 2010.
