She said at this point federal grants are not being considered for the property, just local grant programs. “We are still in discussions with the landowner regarding whether and how we may work together to purchase the land,” Lundin said in an e-mail.

A near two-year debate involving a Muslim prayer center and a Sammamish neighborhood should be resolved next week. Hearing examiner John Galt reviewed an appeal earlier this week by the nonprofit group “Friends of SE 20th,” which contested the city’s conditional approval of a 44-space parking lot in the 22000 block of Southeast 20th Street. The city’s Planning Department gave the Sammamish Muslim Association approval for the lot — assuming it followed a list of 34 conditions — on Sept. 6, 2012. The SMA initially applied for a parking lot in March of 2011. The current prayer center, a converted 2,900-square-foot single-family home, will not be altered itself. “Friends of SE 20th” voiced several issues with the city’s conditional approval of the parking lot, noting they don’t believe it’s compatible with the surrounding vicinity. They argued additional traffic will make it tough for neighbors to get in and out of their driveways. They also took issue with the number of prayer services and hours — something, they say, makes the SMA different than other religious organizations in Sammamish neighborhoods. “The thing that brings concern to me is the intensity, it’s five times a day, it’s 365 days a year, there is no day of rest for me from that scenario,” said Don Allaire, president of the neighborhood group. Friends of Southeast 20th attorney Mark Davidson argued that depending on the time

CLEAR CUT CONCERNS May Valley residents fear worst with potential tree removal on Squak Mountain


“You take away that sponge, we’re going to have problems.”



he video of prior flooding of May Creek is genuinely terrifying. Water lapped over SR 900 causing traffic to come to a near stop. Low-lying farmland is submerged.

It is a scenario that Helen Farrington and her neighbors don’t want to replay as they worry about the potential clear-cutting of 216-acres on Squak Mountain that has been purchased by Erickson Logging, Inc. of Eatonville. The neighbors say the heavily timbered mountainside keeps heavy rain and drainage from eroding the hillside, which would further complicate May Creek if the trees were gone. “You take away that sponge, we’re going to have problems,” Farrington said. When a bridge over a 30-inch culvert was snapped by a truck, six neighbors paid $100,000 for a new one on their private road. “That’s a lot for working families to come up with,” Farrington said. The new culvert is 12 feet wide, 9 feet high and 30 feet long. Three weeks after the new

– Helen Farrington culvert and bridge were completed, five Coho salmon came through. “Historically there’s always been fish in May Creek, and now they’re returning,” Farrington said. Then, when Farrington heard of the Erickson purchase, “I freaked out,” she said. “We had this bridge built based on the amount of water that comes through now.” Ingrid Lundin with the King County Parks Natural Resource Lands Program, said Conser-

Beat the winter blues with brews BY linda ball

An event designed to break up the winter blahs also will showcase Gilman Village, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. The Issaquah Chamber of Commerce is promoting “Beat the Winter Brews Fest,” Feb. 26, at participating Gilman Village merchants. This is the first time for the event. “Beat the Winter Brews Fest” will showcase a variety of beers, local spirits, wine and non-alcoholic beverages. Robin Kelley, director of festivals, said Rogue Issaquah Brewhouse will be featured, but there will be an assortment of spirits and wine to taste. Kelley expects about 14 storefronts to

participate in the event including Bras Thermography, CleanScapes, Frame & Bodywork, Kitchen Cupboard, the Writer’s Cottage, Palettes and Pairings, Pelage Spa, Phoenix Art Restoration, Serenity, Steve’s Doughnuts, Suburban Soul and The White Board. Three vacant storefronts also will be used as venues. All the restaurants in the Village will be open for business as usual. The chamber is asking participants to park on the NW Juniper Street side of the village, where a banner will indicate where the “gate” to the event is. Tickets are $20 if purchased by Feb. 22 – after Feb. 22 they are $25 and are available on the chamber’s website at www. under the event tab. The event is from 5:30-8:30 p.m.

of year, prayers could start as early as 4:30 a.m. and as late as 11:30 p.m. The SMA said that the parking lot itself will seldom be full except for special occasions like Friday noon prayer and Ramadan. “At best, (neighbor’s) complaints amount to speculative scenarios that are unrealistic,” said SMA attorney Tadas Kisielius. The city argued it conducted a comprehensive study, taking all concerns into account. With recent non-motorized improvements to Southeast 20th Street, engineers said the road could handle up to 11,000 vehicles a day. The city said it averages 4,000 currently and the additional parking would only increase traffic by roughly 70 cars a day. As for the complaints about hours of operation, the city said noise and light levels wouldn’t be any different than an eight-lot subdivision, which is what the property could hold. More importantly, said attorney Kari Sand, there are laws protecting religious affiliations. “City staff decided restricting the hours of wor-

raising would take a few years as grant funds are limited each year, and are distributed to many projects throughout the county. However, she added, that between now and the time of any purchase, there still is the possibility that Erickson could harvests his land under applicable state forestry regulations. Erickson’s harvest activity is not required to meet the criteria to qualify for a state Department of Natural Resources forest practices permit. According to the office of county commissioner, Reagan Dunn, since the land falls within the Forest Practices jurisdiction, an application for harvest can be made on the property. Erickson has not yet applied for a permit to do that, according to Bryan Flint, a spokesman for the DNR. “I’m begging at this point for the DNR to do an environmental review,” Farrington said. In a letter to Farrington dated Feb. 11, 2013, Dunn’s office said “the South Puget Sound Regional Forest Practices Board has conducted a pre-screening of the area for risk assessment. They did not see any issue that particularly stood out if the harvest went forward. Dunn’s office said it raised the issue of flooding, but that the board noted that while the creek floods occasionally already, it believes that storm runoff from roads is where increased flooding would come from so it would not be addressed under a timber harvest application. “The application for a permit to harvest can take up to 30 days to be approved with 14 days of review required before approval is given. If the 30 days comes and there are no objections, a harvest will be automatically approved. If there are objections, the process can be stopped until it meets the FPB conditions.” Farrington said some mitigation, and more study is needed – now.

Lessons learned from rotator cuff surgery


was on vacation last week taking care of my wife, who had rotator cuff surgery. The arthroscopic surgery was amazing. Check-in to check-out was about four hours. However, recovery shows how much we take things for granted. Since my wife is right handed, and it was her right rotator cuff that was repaired, daily life for her has been, well, a challenge. The first night after surgery she wanted chicken noodle soup. Turns out it’s difficult to corral noodles with an uncooperative left hand. Future meals quickly shifted to include Craig Groshart things she could stab. Dessert, it turns out, can go a long way to help keep spirits up. The go-to choice has been a Drumstick ice cream cone, which even a left hand can handle. Finally, favorite clothes now take a back seat to those that can go on easily with one hand.

OTHER OBSERVATIONS ■ I see that Wayne LaPierre, the executive vice president of the National Rifle Association, has come out against universal background checks for people who want to buy guns. He calls it an “unworkable universal federal nightmare bureaucracy.” It’s interesting how he was in support of the idea in 1999 after the Columbine massacre. ■ People are concerned that the U.S.Postal Service no long will deliver letters on Saturday, beginning this August. I am, too, but only because the postal service picked the wrong day. It should be Tuesday, when most of the junk mail seems to arrive in my mailbox. ■ The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show was this week and, as a fan, I find myself more conscious of all things canine. So, I liked this sticker on the back of an SUV: “You had me at woof.” – Craig Groshart, Issaquah & Sammamish Reporter ISSAQUAH | SAMMAMISH

My night at the Oscars


n Feb. 24 the stars will walk the Red Carpet to celebrate the great films, performances, costumes, technical honors, directing and producing of the movies that entertain, move and amuse us. The 85th Academy Awards, also known as the Oscars, are the grand finale of the awards season. This year I’ll be there vicariously at a local Red Carpet event at Lincoln Square Cinemas in Bellevue, watching with great interest. I’ve seen six of the nine Best Picture nominees. I try to see them all, but sometimes it’s not Linda Ball possible. I’ve also seen a majority of the nominated performances, of which there were some great ones this year. What eats at me is the exclusion of Ben Affleck from being nominated in the best directing category. His excellent movie, “Argo,” is nominated for best picture and six other nominations. But not for directing, even though he won a similar award at the Golden Globes and, more importantly, the director’s guild. Does the academy think this film directed itself? This has got to be the biggest snub by Oscar this year. “Argo” is the true story about a very gutsy CIA mission to rescue six American officials caught in Tehran during the 1979 hostage crisis. This is a slice of history that no one knew about until it was de-classified in 1997. It’s a riveting film, keeping you on the edge of your seat the majority of the time. Affleck also stars as Tony Mendez, the CIA operative who gets the six safely out of Iran.

REPORTER’S NOTEBOOK Other actors in other films are equally riveting. No matter if you’ve read “Les Misérables” or seen it performed on stage, it is a wonder to behold this film. Anne Hathaway is sure to run off with her first Oscar (for supporting actress) for her stunning portrayal of Fantine, the tortured soul forced into prostitution to provide for her daughter, Cosette. Her co-star, Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean, gives an equally stunning performance, but it’s going to be hard for anyone to beat Daniel Day-Lewis for literally morphing into Abraham Lincoln in the Steven Spielberg directed “Lincoln.” Also interesting this year is “Silver Linings Playbook,” the first film to have nominees in all four acting categories in years. My guess is the talented Jennifer Lawrence will win her first Oscar, for actress in a leading role for this film. Of the other best actress nominees, little Quvenzhané Wallis, the star of “Beasts of the Southern Wild” was a delight to watch. Now 9-years-old, she is the youngest nominee ever in this category. She was only 6 when the movie was filmed. She’s a little dynamo, in a profoundly tough role. I loved her, and it would be a delight to see her win. Either way, she’s got a huge career in front of her. Best supporting actor is a tough one. All four nominees have been nominated before, and they all rock, but I’m hoping Alan Arkin wins for “Argo.” Staff writer Linda Ball can be reached at 425-391-0363, ext. 5052.

We have a lot of unusual wildlife species up here (Squak Mountain). Cougars pass through, we have bobcats, of course bear, and a variety of birds including the large Pileated Woodpecker, quail, and grouse. We even have important species as small as the Western Toad and Tailed Frog. The Tailed Frog is associated with pristine headwater streams, so we have unusually valuable habitat considering how close we are to large urban areas. There is also potential habitat for some state and federally protected species, and until surveys are done we cannot rule out their presence on this land. This 200+ acres is part of the ‘actual’ wildlife corridor between Squak and Cougar mountains, an important requirement for those species needing large home ranges – and the animals don’t know whether the corridor they use is on county or private land. There are steep slopes and streams in this acreage, mostly in what we call “the upper triangle,” so there is also the issue of increased flooding, land slides and stream siltation, all of which have been experienced over the years by residents below. We hope that the logger who now owns this land will work with King County and other entities to preserve, in it’s wild state, all of this acreage or at least “the upper triangle” where we see the best habitat and hiking potential. With King County increasingly losing wild open spaces, it is more important than ever to retain what we have. Since this area is so close to our cities, it can easily provide a quick respite from our busy lives.

Police reports from Issaquah and Sammamish BY Kevin endejan

The following information was compiled from City of Sammamish police reports:

SURPRISE ARREST An 18-year-old Sammamish resident was pulled over Feb. 9 after police witnessed him driving 14 mph over the posted limit and swerving over the fog line on northbound 216th Avenue Northeast. The driver admitted to drinking beers earlier in the evening and smoking two bowls of marijuana. When police got him back to the station, the driver, who was now two hours

past curfew, said he should call his mom, but didn’t know what to say. Police advised him he should tell her the truth that he had been arrested for DUI. He responded with, “I’ve been arrested?”

MATTRESS FIRE A 59-year-old Sammamish man called police Feb. 3 to report an arson at an apartment complex in the 22000 block of Northeast Eighth Street. The man said an unknown white male juvenile set fire to a box spring at the apartment building’s dumpster enclosure.

DRUNK COUPLE Sammamish police responded to a welfare check Feb. 10, involving a 12-year-old boy, who was

unable to wake his parents. The boy’s uncle called police after the concerned boy called him. When police arrived at the home in the 4300 block of Issaquah Pine Lake Road Southeast, they were overwhelmed by the smell of alcohol. They found a man and a woman unresponsive and an almost empty half gallon of vodka. Police contacted medics who took the parents to the hospital. Child Protective Services were contacted and the boy was released into the custody of his grandparents.

BATHROOM BREAK-IN A Sammamish woman called police Feb. 8 to report the theft of $3,300 items from her home. Thieves entered the home in the 200 block of 221st Avenue Northeast through a small bathroom window, above the shower. The woman discovered her home was broken into after finding her dog locked in the bathroom. Thieves

took cash, a ring and a new laptop computer.

REPEAT VANDALISM A Sammamish woman reported someone threw a beer can at the window of her home Jan. 25. The can reportedly left a dent in the siding of the home in the 2400 block of Southeast 30th Street. The woman said for the last 10 years or so her home has been victim to vandalism. She said during the night hours, usually around midnight, rocks, beer cans and fireworks have been thrown at her home. She said she doesn’t know of anyone who would intentionally damage her home and suspects juveniles partying at nearby Beaver Lake Park.

MISSING LAPTOP An Eastlake High School sophomore called police Jan. 22 to report someone stole his school-

assigned laptop computer the previous week. The student said he left the computer sitting on a bench inside the school gym and later discovered someone took it. He said he waited so long to report the incident because he hoped someone would locate or return his computer.

DANGEROUSLY DRUNK A concerned mother called police Jan. 21 to report her 15-yearold daughter was brought home heavily intoxicated. Sammamish police arrived to find the girl sitting in a parking lot unresponsive with a group of friends. The girl was loaded into an ambulance and taken to Harborview Medical Center. Her friends would not tell the location of the party they came from, but admitted to drinking 1/3 of a fifth of vodka and “shot-gunning” three to four beers.

TEETH CLEANING Police seek leads in defibrillator theft

Age 50 or Over

Call Today



Staff members at Sammamish’s Mary Queen of Peace Church were shocked to discover Feb. 2 two defibrillators were stolen sometime during the previous week. Defibrillators are common fixtures in many local buildings because the devices can assess and apply potentially life-saving therapy to people experiencing a cardiac incident, often before police and fire personnel arrive. The devices, officially called Automatic External Defibrillators, cost

approximately $1,100 each. “It’s hard to believe someone would steal a life-saving device from a church,” Parish Administrator Rich Shively said. “We would be glad to have the devices returned to the church, no questions asked.” Although it’s hoped the devices will be returned promptly, Sammamish Police are seeking information from the public regarding the theft. Anyone with information is asked to call 425-295-0770 during business hours.

Special Arts Sammamish hosts first event BY kevin endejan

Smiles weren’t difficult to find Saturday afternoon at the Sammamish EX3 Teen Center. Seventeen special needs children paired with 17 volunteers, participated in the first-ever Special Arts Sammamish event, “Make it a Clay Day.” “Through this program we can reach out to kids and families who on an everyday basis face trials and challenges that most of us can just vaguely imagine,” said Sammamish Arts Commissioner Lin Garretson. This past weekend’s free function, which featured children of varying ages and disabilities, was the first of what the Arts Commission plans to make a quarterly gathering on the Plateau. “Au-Some Artists,” focused on children with autism is already planned for April — Autism Awareness month. Other events are scheduled for September and November. Garretson said it was important for the Sammamish Arts Commission to make sure it included the entire community. “These are people who have created thoughts and ideas, but aren’t necessarily the ones who are going to a concert or an arts class,” she said. “When we can’t always express our feelings through words, that’s where art comes in.” Marie Werbel, a mother of two vision impaired participants, was thrilled by the

UPCOMING EVENTS April - “Au-some Artists” September - Surprise event November - “Life Stories,” teens and seniors collaboration event. Sitting in the back of the room, she watched with pride as her son Eric, 14, and daughter Hannah, 16, molded clay with their hands. “I think it’s a great opportunity to be able to meet people as friends, to be able to mentor kids who are younger than them and for people to not feel alone in their disability,” Werbel said. The participants in Saturday’s event worked with Sammamish artist Betsy Matias on a hand-building clay project, while Seattle artist Trevor Johnson guided kids on two potters wheels. Johnson will donate more time when he takes the pieces back to his Seward Park studio to fire them. He will then return them to the kids, who will finish them with their mentors or parents. “When they’re creating these things, to see it done, that’s the real joy,” Garretson said. “To see their faces light up and say, ‘I made that.’” Assistant editor Kevin Endejan can be reached at 425-391-0363, ext. ext. 5054.

LWSD sees spike in homelessness Reporter newspapers

Most people envision panhandlers and adults sleeping in doorways in downtown Seattle when they think of the homeless. The vision of a homeless first grader is what first comes to peoples’ minds. Yet numbers released this past week by the Washington State Superintendent of Public Instruction’s office paint a stark picture of homeless students in Eastside school districts in 2011-2012. But current numbers are even more severe. “As of Friday, Feb. 8 we have 209 students identified as homeless under the McKinney Vento Act; last year on Feb. 10, we had 169,” said Lake Washington School District spokesperson Kathryn Reith. Under the federal McKinney-Vento Act, all school districts are required to track the number of students identified as homeless in their district, and they also have certain obligations to those homeless students. McKinney-Vento defines a student as homeless if he or she lacks a fixed, regular and adequate nighttime residence. “For the four Eastside school districts I looked at, 686 students were identified as homeless during the 201112 school year,” said policy Director Kelly Rider of the Housing Development Consortium. “A large number of young kids are homeless particularly in the Lake Washington School District.” The LWSD, which includes north Sammamish schools, led the way with an estimated 213 homeless kids, Bellevue was second with 185 and the Northshore School District has 151 homeless students. “We do have a larger overall enrollment than our neighboring districts, which may explain the higher number,” said Reith. The trend during the past five years has been increasing, according to Reith. In 2006-2007 there was believed to be 27-28 students identified as homeless. But that upward trend could be due to the efforts by the LWSD in

Education news from Issaquah and Sammamish

“These numbers are high but they don’t represent all the kids in the community that are homeless.”

IVE named school of distinction Issaquah Valley Elementary received the distinction for being one of the 5 percent highest improving schools in the state for increased reading and match achievement over the past five years. Only 96 other schools in Washington earned the award.

Students get to ‘Influence the Choice’

- Terry Pottmeyer, Friends of Youth

The Issaquah Community Network and Drug Free Community Coalition are inviting 6th- through 12thgrade students to create short video commercials telling their friends how to resist alcohol, marijuana and prescription drug temptations. Contest sponsors are asking for video “commercials” two minutes in length or less to be submitted before the deadline of Feb. 28. A grand prize of $800 will be awarded to the best video. Other prizes include first, second and third prizes of $100, $75 and $50 in the categories of “Most Influential Alcohol Video,” “Most Influential Marijuana Video,” and “Most Influential Prescription Drug Video.” A flyer with complete details, entry requirements and an entry form can be downloaded from

tracking the problem. The numbers released by the state on the 2011-2012 school year were alarming to officials who work with homeless youth daily. “These numbers are high but they don’t represent all the kids in the community that are homeless,” said President and CEO of Friends of Youth Terry Pottmeyer. “A lot of kids don’t report that they are in need of stable housing.” The most striking thing about the numbers from 20112012 are how many are of the younger age levels. Twenty pre-kindergarten students were listed as homeless, while nearly 60 were between kindergarten and third grade. Bellevue had the most kindergartners with 21, while Issaquah had the most first graders with 19. One of the most stunning trends in the numbers was how the numbers decline as the kids get older, but that could be due to how willing those kids are to admitting they are homeless. LWSD had the most homeless kids on the Eastside in grades 2, 3 and 9. LWSD was also anomalous as it nearly doubled the next closest district’s total with 23 seniors in high school reporting they were homeless. “Many older kids want to continue to fit in,” said Pottmeyer. “They want to do everything they can to appear normal and won’t self report. Some are couch surfing and living with someone else. They don’t think they are homeless.”

Social media program set at Eastlake Eastlake High School will host a parent education program about the risks of social media. Seattle attorney Charles Leitch will help parents understand the dangers of predators, bullies and potential bad decisions that can haunt students for years. Leitch will lead PTSA members in a guided conversation and presentation to help guide parents through the increasingly connected world of phones, mobile devices and online social media. The Eastlake event will take place from 7-9 p.m., Feb. 21 at the school theater.

What’s happening in the world of sports

Eastside Catholic lacrosse players escape accident without serious injury A group of Eastside Catholic girls lacrosse players headed to Oregon for a weekend of competition made it only a few miles before having the trip derailed by a King County Metro bus. The group of 10, which was driving in three separate SUVs, was headed to I-90 when a Metro bus struck two of the three cars in the intersection of Issaquah-Pine Lake Road and Issaquah-Fall city Road in Sammamish. Three girls were taken to the hospital and released and no one involved sustained serious injuries. The two passenger vehicles involved were totaled.

4 district champs lead area wrestlers to state Four Issaquah-Sammamish preps took regional wrestling titles to lead a sizable contingent to the Tacoma Dome for this weekend’s wrestling state championships. Issaquah’s Jonathan Norris had little trouble with any of his three opponents, pinning each in under two minutes to win the title at 285. Eric Harper was one of only two to make it through regionals for Eastlake, winning his first two matches by pin before securing a 4-3 win in the finals to take a top seed at 196 pounds. Sabrina Handlon pinned a pair of opponents inside of two minutes and won the title match 16-0 to take the regional title at 100 pounds and move

into the girls state tournament as a top seed. Eastside Catholic’s Matt Iwicki took the title at the Marysville-Pilchuck regional in 3A for the Crusaders at 120 with two pins and a 3-0 decision in the finals. Nate Swanson won his first two matches by pine before falling in the finals to take a second seed to the 4A state meet at 106 pounds for Skyline. Teammate Justin Manipis made the finals at 113 before losing a decision to finish second and Issaquah’s Torre Eaton won the third place match to earn his state berth. Jordan Hamilton made the regional title match for the Eagles at 120 before

losing a decision and Skyline’s Joseph DeMatteo did the same at 126. Louden Ivey of Issaquah was third after a 3-1 day for coach Kirk Hyatt. Tristan Steciw took the third place match for Skyline at 132 and Joey Gurke was the runner-up at 138 after a pair of dominating decision wins. Bo Longmore took the final state spot at 145 for Skyline and Michael Mecham finished second at 160 with two pins. Dallas Starren earned the final spot at 182 for Issaquah. Sean McAlhaney and Matt Solusod faced off in the finals at 220, with McAlhaney winning by pin for Skyline and giving Solusod the second seed to state for the Eagles.

Fields set for state swim and dive, Kim leads pack The 4A state swim and dive championships begin Friday at King County Aquatic Center in Federal Way and Eastlake junior Edward Kim will lead a number of title hopefuls from Issaquah and Sammamish. After collecting four individual titles already, taking the 200 free and 100 backstroke as a sophomore after winning the 100 free and 50 free as a freshman. Head coach Kate McCary said Kim’s individual success has helped bolster the confidence of a group that will take its largest group to state in her tenure. “They kind of feed off each other,” she said. “Ed’s success, in years past, has been a motivational factor.” Kim owns the top seed time in both of his individual events for this year’s state championships, the 50 free and 100 fly. Markus Zimmerman (200 free, 500 free), Mahak Kuroshe (50 free, 100 breast), William Matsuda (100 fly) and Cam Rush will also try and take a spot on the podium

while the Wolves will also have relay teams in the 200 medley, 200 free and 400 free races. “This is my favorite time of the year,” McCary said.

Urcia Urcia is a 7-year-old, medium sized black kitty with a diva of an attitude. She currently resides with the volunteers of the Purrfect Pals Cat Shelter at the Issaquah Petco location, but she’d rather be with a family. Urcia will be happiest where she is the only pet. She loves attention, chin scratches and back rubs, but will let you know when she’s had enough. Urcia would be great with a family with older children and is generally good with people. Urcia is up for adoption at the Issaquah Petco location off of Gilman Boulevard, near the new Trader Joe’s.


Issaquah needs a little over $800,000 to restore the 15-plus acre park along Rainier Boulevard and Issaquah Creek. Funding is in place for work in 2013, but construction in 2014 is only partially funded. Grant applications in 2012 were not successful in obtaining all of the needed funding. The stream and habitat restoration work started in 2011 using grant funds from King Conservation District and the State Salmon Recovery Funding Board. In January, the Issaquah City Council agreed to submit grant applications to National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration, the Salmon Re-

covery Funding Board and Puget Sound Restoration and Acquisition to make up the needed funds. Issaquah Mayor Ava Frisinger said the city is required to provide a match of $250,000 which will come from the stormwater capital fund. The council has previously approved similar grants applications for the project. The only change is that the construction budget has increased, due to a greater amount of proposed restoration and higher construction costs. Frisinger said the creek banks were subjected to hardening resulting in damage and erosion. Tiers need to be created followed by re-planting. “We want to put it back to a more natural state,” Frisinger said.

Mattress recycling available King County’s Take it Back Network now includes mattress recycling. In addition, two new firms, Rubbish Works, in Bellevue and A Plus Removal & Recycling, in Auburn, have joined the recycling network. A fee is charged to cover recycling costs. The fee varies depending on if the mattress is dropped off or is picked up. To drop off a mattress or schedule a pick-up, call Rubbish Works at 425-681-9233 or A Plus Removal & Recycling at 253-737-4441. Each year, up to 40 million mattresses with box springs are disposed in the U.S., and a single mattress can take up as much as 40 cubic feet of landfill space. In 2011, King County received about 90,000 mattresses weighing more than 3,000 tons for disposal at its landfill.
