Recyclables getting more restricted


November 14, 2018

The Goldendale Primary School says that, thanks to strong community support, it earned $2,756 to purchase books from Scholastic. They have already purchased 149 books with this money and will be purchasing more in the future. This was their best fair in 10 years. Visit the website at to see general information about the school.

Things are changing in the recycling world, and Klickitat County will feel the brunt of it. Beginning on Dec. 1, number 1 and 2 recyclables will be the only numbers that can be recycled, such as milk containers, soda and water bottles, explains Averie Morgan, Klickitat County Recycling Coordinator. Look on the bottom of your plastic containers for the triangle that has a number inside. You can still recycle aluminum and tin cans, paper and cardboard, as long as all of these things are empty, clean and dry. Of course, glass can still be taken to the Transfer Station, too. There is one common thing that cannot be recycled at all anymore, which is the plastic grocery bag, but some stores will have a collection area for them. Strict rules are that if you have anything in the recycle bag that shouldn't be, the bag will be left on the curb with an orange tag.

There was quite a line-up alongside the road in front of the Masonic Lodge and courthouse lawn for the Veterans Day Parade. Sheriff Bob Songer was our Grand Marshall this year. We always want to thank the Goldendale High School Band for playing, since they are not at a game on that day.

Don't forget the annual Candy Cane Lane parade on Saturday, Dec. 8, here in Goldendale, beginning at 5 p.m. Gorge Country Media plans to broadcast it on KLCK radio and do live coverage at the Masonic Lodge and courthouse lawn. The tree lighting will be during the parade, as well as pictures with Santa afterwards at the Masonic Lodge. Mark it on your calendar.
