Residents still need the center, will miss convenience
Our household is saddened by the news of the closure of the Issaquah Recycling Center. Not all of us here on the outskirts of the city have the luxury of curbside recycling, so a stop at the recycling center had become a near-weekly stop to unload cardboard, plastic, glass, newspapers and more.

The geese that roam Lake Sammamish State Park are likely safe this year, according to Virginia Painter, spokeswoman for Washington State Parks.
State park officials killed about 90 birds last summer to control the population and mitigate any harmful effects their feces may cause. So far, there are no plans to kill any at the local park this year, Painter said.
“Managers don’t foresee us doing a lethal solution at Lake Sammamish State Park this year,” she said.
