CleanScapes Waste Reduction Prize Awarded


CleanScapes is delighted to announce that a new playground at Washington Park is the featured $50,000 community project chosen as the 2009/2010 waste reduction competition award.

 

“An excellent effort to reduce our City’s waste was made by everyone, but special recognition goes to the residents of the Thursday collection area,” says Sally Bagshaw, Chair of the Seattle City Council’s Parks and Seattle Center Committee.  “The playground is a welcome addition to Washington Park.” 

 

A community-led volunteer committee selected the winning Neighborhood Waste Reduction Rewards project. The project selection committee was made up of representatives from the community councils located in the CleanScapes Thursday collection area, which includes portions of Montlake, Madison Park, Madison Valley, Madrona, Capitol Hill, First Hill and Yesler Terrace. The Thursday collection area residents won the competition by reducing the amount of waste (garbage, recycling, yard waste) collected between October 1, 2009 and March 31, 2010 by a greater percentage than any other CleanScapes collection area.
