#WeAreAllLFP Plastic bags and film can be recycled! The best way to recycle bags and film is to bring them back to a store with a collection site. Just stuff them clean and dry into a single plastic bag, tie it up, and drop it into a plastic bag/film collection container.
To find a drop off location go to plasticfilmrecycling.org.

In December 2017, the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency (PSCAA) installed a fine particulate air pollution monitoring station in Lake Forest Park near the intersection of Bothell Way and Ballinger Way. The monitor is partially disguised as a Park Bench with a moderately sized box behind it that contains the monitoring station equipment. The station primarily monitors fine particle pollution (PM2.5) that is often a byproduct of wood stove and vehicle exhaust. According to the PSCA...A, “Particle pollution poses serious public health impacts and is the most important criteria air pollutant challenge facing our region.” PSCAA is interested in collecting data throughout the Puget Sound to better understand air quality and its health risks.
To view the data from the new monitoring station follow this link: https://secure.pscleanair.org/AirQuality/NetworkMap
