Shift Green Recycle Oil Program in Renton

Our Solid Waste Utility division has launched Shift Green, making it easier for Renton residents and businesses to recycle motor oil and filters.

You can bring used motor oil and filters to AutoZone and O'Reilly's for free recycling. Using this service helps the economy and protects the environment.

We're asking residents to take a quick five-question survey to help us learn more about your oil-changing habits so we can expand the service.


Cascade Park playground

Cascade Park playground reopens

The playground at Cascade Park has reopened after a playground equipment replacement project and relocation.

The new playground was moved to the south, making it more visible from the neighborhood along 126th Avenue SE. This new location will also resolve flooding issues.

New equipment including climbers, steppers, monkey bars, slides, spinners, and swings provide exciting play opportunities. Final work on the project will occur in early fall and include installation of site furnishings adjacent to the play area.

Construction started on May 23. Parks Planning and Natural Resources division oversaw the project. Funding came from their Capital Improvement Project fund.
