A Better Way to Manage our Resources

Sanitary Service Company celebrates 25 years of city-wide curbside recycling

Over 30 years ago, a group of Bellingham citizens—too many to individually name here—had a dream of city-wide curbside recycling. In 1982, using a borrowed truck, these dedicated volunteers began collecting recyclables curbside in the Birchwood neighborhood. Other neighborhoods soon joined, including Samish, Sehome, Happy Valley, Fairhaven, and Columbia.

Over the next few years, these avid recyclers and others would establish the non-profit, Bellingham Community Recycling (BCR). Under BCR, curbside recycling expanded to more neighborhoods, a truck was purchased, and a collection crew was hired.

In 1989, citizen efforts resulted in the implementation of a city-wide curbside recycling program as part of the City of Bellingham’s contract with SSC. Stacks of red, white, and blue recycling bins full of material waiting at the curb or alley became a common a sight in Bellingham.

This summer, SSC celebrates the 25th anniversary of city-wide curbside recycling. Those early pioneers believed there was a better way to manage our resources than landfilling or incinerating them and they were confident the people of Bellingham (and subsequently all of Whatcom County) were ready to accept the challenge. Accept the challenge they did! Participation, diversion, and the quality of Whatcom County recyclables are among the highest in the nation.

No surprise that along the way, BCR and some of those same pioneers evolved into a group known today as RE Sources, whose programs and staff continue to shape and inspire the conversations over how we may respect and live lightly upon this place we call home.

Thank you for continuing to challenge yourselves—and us—to keep Whatcom County green and growing.

  54. Online yoga teacher training - Spend time reflecting on what you want and need. What would the best yoga teacher training in the world look like for you. What truly resonates and speaks to you deep within yourself? Take time meditating, practicing, even talking it out with teachers and friends. In the end, yoga teacher training is an incredible experience. It’s (usually) well worth the investment and you won’t regret it. If you want to go the digital, try to find the best online yoga teacher training that you can afford.
