    Already a line to the street at the recycle/shredding event. 

    • Shannon March 19, 2022 (9:40 am)

      The line at 9:40 is about 3/4 mile long, but moving steadily

      I wondered about the wait time in line- plz keep us updated if the wait time decreases as the event proceeds. I have some things I’d like to drop off

        We were just there. Cars stretch back to SSC’s south entrance.

    There is construction on 35th Ave SW between Henderson and Barton. No center turn lane. No parking signs indicate work will continue through Monday. Drive safe and be kind.

Sorry, comment time is over.
