They say one man's trash is another man's treasure. But, with a competition announced today by CleanScapes, Seattle Public Utilities and King County Councilmember Larry Phillips, creating less trash could mean treasure for your neighborhood.
As part of the 2011 Neighborhood Waste Reduction Rewards Program, CleanScapes is offering to build a $50,000 community project in the neighborhood that best reduces its waste footprint.
According to CleanScapes, the typical Seattle family of four disposes of three tons of garbage, recycling and yard/food waste every year.
