King County Conservation Corps
In support of guidance from Public Health – Seattle & King County to limit activity in public places, the King County Conservation Corps has suspended operations through the end of March.
The county’s Department of Local Services and Solid Waste Division entered into a contract with the Millionair Club Charity to create a six-month pilot program. The program, which will continue through mid-April 2020, provides garbage removal and other clean-up services five days a week in White Center and Skyway.
Similar services are in the planning stage for unincorporated communities in Fairwood and East Federal Way.
After the pilot program ends, the county will evaluate its performance and consider customer feedback as it assesses the viability of this concept. If it’s a success, the county will consider extending the program into other unincorporated areas—and including it in future budgets.
