CleanScapes ranks #12 on list of 100 Fastest Growing Private Companies in Washington


Check out this article about our growth...

 

Year-over-year fast growth is difficult to maintain. First, to make the Puget Sound Business Journal’s list of 100 Fastest-Growing Private Companies, a company must have achieved rapid growth for three years. To repeat that performance is not an easy task. For the companies that make the list four or more years, the Business Journal acknowledges them in the Hall of Fame.

Reclaiming Pioneer Square for Community Gatherings


Check out this article about how we've helped clean up Pioneer Square alleys...

The network of businesses connected to the historic Nord building, located near First Avenue and Main Street, has created a vibrant and charming social space in an unlikely locale: the alleyway behind their offices.

CleanScapes Competes With Goliaths For Kent Contract


Check out this article about our bid for cleanup in the Kent area...

The contract for the city of 87,000 could be worth about $200 million over its full length of 11 years, said Kelly Peterson, environmental conservation supervisor for Kent.

 

Once again, the relatively small, Seattle-based CleanScapes will be competing with a few giant corporations, including the two biggest in the industry: Waste Management Inc., a Houston-based company with $12.4 billion in revenue, and Allied Waste, a Phoenix-based company with $6 billion in revenue that recently merged with Republic Services, becoming the second-biggest in the country.

A: Dear Mack,

Gardeners in Shoreline cannot recycle plastic plant pots curbside, but several Shoreline businesses accept containers for recycling. Some nurseries will re-use these pots and trays -- making your gardening practices even "greener."

Q: Can I recycle the plastic plant containers that new plants come in? - SEATTLE


A: Dear Mack,

Green thumbs Seattle rest assured: The heaps of empty plastic plant pots sitting outside your garden shed can all be recycled in your curbside recycling! Just be sure to give them a good shake and a rinse. Loose dirt can contaminate loads of recyclables.

Recyclable nursery pots include square and round pots and seedling trays of all colors.
