About Kirkland Conserves

We share green tips, news, and events for Kirkland, Washington, residents and businesses. Many departments at the City of Kirkland are involved in environmental work, so we teamed up to make it easy for Kirklanders to learn about green topics. The Kirkland Conserves blog is run by the Solid Waste and Surface Water divisions – in plain talk, that means our focus is recycling and keeping water clean – but we also like to share about other neat environmental programs in Kirkland.

Our Team

John, Jenna, and Tracy write from the recycling and waste reduction perspective, and Betsy represents surface water. We also welcome guest bloggers from other departments that fall under the Kirkland Green umbrella, as well as community members like Seattle Tilth.
