Green Initiatives at The Collection

The Collection is committed to controlling waste, conservations of energy and water, use of Green cleaning products and other methods of Sustainable Property Management.

There are over 10 locations at Bellevue Square and Lincoln Square where you can recycle 16 different types of materials.

Many restaurants at The Collection recycle their own food waste and are provided containers to turn their grease waste into Bio-diesels and implementing waterless urinals throughout The Collection saves an average of 36 million gallons of water annually.

Walk for Life – A Shopping Center Walking Program

Overlake Medical Center and the Bellevue Family YMCA invite you to Walk for Life, a free on-going program held Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays (except holidays) from 8 to 9:30 a.m. at Bellevue Square. Walkers can drop in and attend whatever days and times fit their schedules.

Walk for Life is a safe, effective, low impact and convenient way to exercise while meeting friends. Walking in Bellevue Square provides a flat, well lit, even surface with controlled temperatures in a friendly and inviting atmosphere. Half-mile and one-mile routes are available, but everyone walks at their own pace and the distance that works best for them.

A Walk for Life coordinator is available daily to help get the most benefit from the walking program. Free blood pressure screenings are also available. This is not a medically supervised program.

It’s easy to join Walk for Life. Check-in at the Walk for Life registration table, inside the doors at The North Face entrance at Bellevue Square. Park on the ground level of the parking garage just south of Nordstrom, and enter through the first shopping center entrance off NE 8th Street. Parking is complimentary.

No registration is required. For more information on the Walk for Life Program, visit overlakehospital.org/classes or call (425) 688-5259.
