A group of community organizations will be launching a recycling and composting effort on Sunday, April 30 at the Washington State Apple Blossom Festival Food Fair, with the support of local businesses and festival leaders. One of the strongest community values in our region is a sense of caring for our natural environment and this effort to reduce the amount of waste that goes into the landfill fits nicely with that ethos.
