Bluebird Microcreamery’s Phinney Ridge ice cream shop, at 7400 Greenwood Ave. N., is collecting new, unwrapped toys for Toys for Tots. And they’ll give you one free scoop of ice cream for every toy donation.

Waste Management has a new series of public service announcements that is focused on recycling. Greenwood resident Lowell Deo plays the dad. (Deo is also the host of “Neighborhood News” on the Seattle Channel.) He’ll be in the four videos that will be released each Monday in December.

Waste Management presents ‘Waste Management Joe’ – he’s a driver and a psychiatrist. Follow along with the Smith family as they work with Joe to improve their recycling habits. In this episode Jimmy helps his parents figure out what to do with their food scraps and food-soiled paper.

The videos can be found here. For recycling tips, click here.

Polly-Glots children’s foreign language classes, created by a Phinney Ridge mom, will be offering Hindi language classes beginning next year. Classes will be at 4 p.m. Mondays at the Phinney Neighborhood Association. Start date has yet to be determined; email them at  info@polly-glots.com if you’re interested.

Polly-Glots is also looking for a Seattle or Eastside organization for needy kids that would benefit from a free language program. Email them suggestions.
