Mike Bastinelli

I've been in the Valley since 1988. Grew up in Tacoma, went to high school and college in Oregon. Started my radio career in Raymond, Washington in 1981, then moved to Texas and Pennsylvania before coming back to my home state. I love the Yakima Valley with it's four seasons and lots of sunshine and I love being a cheerleader for all of the good stuff we have in the Valley. I've been married to my beautiful wife Kim for 31 years and I have three amazing daughters. Brooke, Melissa and Brianne and two loyal four legged sons Leo and Shadow. On my free time I love to work out or head to the mountains or my favorite winery. At home I love watching my Hawks, Mariners and Huskies or cooking my favorite pasta dish. Oh, by the way I do own a pasta sauce business called "Bastinelli's Best." Shameless plug!!

Pilot Curbside Recycling Program to Launch In May

For the first time since 1999 the City of Yakima will launch a four month curbside pilot recylcling program. Starting in early may about 600 homes will take part in the program.  Loretta Zamarkee,  Yakima Refuse and Recycling Manager " We know that people in Yakima want to recycle, but they are only interested in a curbside program if it can be provided at a reasonable cost, The best way for us to figure out if that’s possible is to actually run a curbside recycling service on a small scale and for a short period of time
