Seattle Neighborhood Waste Reduction Rewards Projects Selected


Three projects will be developed in Northeast Seattle

SEATTLE, WA – Representatives from Northeast Seattle neighborhoods have chosen three projects to be built with $50,000 in funding from CleanScapes. The funding is a reward to the neighborhoods of Wedgwood, Meadowbrook, Inverness, Matthews Beach and View Ridge for reducing the most overall solid waste, recycling and compost among Seattle residents served by CleanScapes.

Residents who comprised the neighborhoods’ selection committee selected the following projects for funding:
