I've heard that there's an exchange in Yakima. I googled it online and couldn't find the addy or hours that their open. From what I read it sounds like a mobile exchange. Anyone have any info on it?

According to the Harm Reduction Coalition's website, there isn't an exchange in Yakima.

Hey PK... Here is the king county NX exchange web page. At the bottome, if you'll notice, is a program called "score" with no address and a phone number for scheduling deliveries. There is a specific phone number for east king county, which obviously is not Yakima, but maybe they could help you out (either by refering you somewhere, or meeting you halfway <they are a NX delivery>).

I hope they can help you out. Maybe it's the mobile exchange you heard about. Hope this helps....

I haven't found current info on the exchange. The article I found was in 2010. Wouldn't surprise me if the program got discontinued. Before 2010 if was a mobile exchange.
