No upcoming events in Des Moines
Recology CleanScapes invites public elementary schools in Des Moines that have not yet participated in the King County Green Schools program to compete in the 2015 Waste Reduction Challenge! To participate, schools sign up to be a King County Green School and work to expand recycling and reduce waste – actions which fulfill Level One of the Green Schools program. Schools that attain a Level One by April 2015 will win a $2,500 capital project.
Projects may include:
Permanent art installations
Water bottle filling stations
To participate in the Challenge, submit the King County Green Schools application.
For more information on the King County Green Schools program, see program flyer or contact Dale Alekel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Every year, approximately 10,000 tons of garbage are collected from Des Moines' residents and businesses and buried in the King County landfill. Roughly 75% of that could have been recycled or better yet, not created in the first place!
Email email@example.com with a unique waste reduction tip for a chance to win a stainless steel counter-top compost container.
