Shoreline 2012 Neighborhood Waste Reduction Rewards Winner


Mayor Keith McGlashan and CleanScapes Announce Winner and Present $10,000 Check

SHORELINE, WA – (April 21, 2012) – On Saturday, April 21st, CleanScapes’ Waste Zero Manager and Shoreline Mayor Keith McGlashan announced the winner of CleanScapes 2011/2012 Neighborhood Reduction Rewards Competition. CleanScapes, the solid waste company serving Shoreline, awarded a $10,000 community grant to the neighborhoods of Hillwood, Innis Arden, Richmond Beach and Richmond Highlands.

The winning neighborhoods, located in CleanScapes’ Thursday collection area, reduced their total waste – garbage, recycling, and food/yard waste by 2.2 percent from last year. The $10,000 award will go towards a project accessible to the public that will benefit the community.

“This is the third year of the Neighborhood Reductions Reward Program, and we are remarkably pleased with the projects we have been able to fund,” commented Chris Martin, President of CleanScapes. Since the inception of the program CleanScapes, working with the City of Shoreline, has funded a number of community improvements, including installing five park benches and mile markers along the Interurban Trail.

This year’s winning neighborhoods will again be able to select the project that CleanScapes will fund. “I think this is a great way for CleanScapes to collaborate with neighborhoods in Shoreline, and give back to the City,” Commented Mayor McGlashan.

Interested in helping your neighborhood win? The 2012/2013 competition will launch in April, giving neighborhoods the chance to compete again for a $10,000 community project.
