Neighborhood Waste Reduction Project Unveiled

Ribbon Cutting, Walking Tour and Community Celebration in Maple Leaf

SEATTLE, WA– Recology CleanScapes awarded a $50,000 community grant to the neighborhoods of Lake City, Northgate, Pinehurst, Maple Leaf and Victory Heightsto fund a capital improvement project as part of the Neighborhood Waste Reduction Rewards program, which encourages Seattle residents to reduce the amount of material sent to the landfill.

This year, community representatives used the grant to fund 47 Little Free Libraries throughout the winning neighborhoods.  Little Free Libraries offer free books housed in small containers and provide an opportunity to reduce the number of books thrown away, build strong communities and make reading more accessible and affordable.

Recology CleanScapes will be hosting a Ribbon Cutting ceremony for  residents in the Lake City, Northgate, Pinehurst, Maple Leaf and Victory Heights neighborhoods on April 30 at 10:00a.m. at Maple Leaf Reservoir Park.

Recology CleanScapes currently provides solid waste and recycling collection service for the cities of Seattle, Shoreline, Des Moines, Issaquah, Carnation, Burien, SeaTac, Maple Valley and Bothell. Recology CleanScapes is a subsidiary of Recology, an employee-owned company that sees a world without waste, where resources are used and re-used in a sustainable ecosystem that strives for their best and highest use.
