Curbside Recycling……..Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

By Larita Humble

Lake residents and weekenders………are you tired of separating your recycling and making a special trip to the recycling station? Do you throw your recycling in your regular garbage can because it’s easier? Weekenders……is it a pain to haul your recycling home for recycling pick up in your home bin? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then I have a suggestion for you! In an effort to receive curbside recycling here at lake Cavanaugh like most towns in the US, the county needs to hear from as many voices as possible repeatedly from our lake residents. Please call, write an email or send a letter requesting curbside recycling (even if you have contacted them previously) to both our Skagit County Commissioners and our Solid Waste Manager.

In the meantime, following is information on locations for recycling:
The Household Hazardous Waste facility is located at the transfer station and is free for all Skagit County residents. A detailed list of what they accept and their hours is available on their website:

Food/yard waste may be taken to Skagit Soils located near the Transfer Station. Website information:
