King County Solid Waste recognizes three Shoreline organizations for recycling and waste reduction

Monday, July 14, 2014

King County’s Solid Waste Division recently announced that 97 local companies and organizations have been named to the 2014 “Best Workplaces for Recycling and Waste Reduction” list, including three organizations in Shoreline.

The list recognizes businesses for their innovative recycling practices and commitment to reducing the amount of waste their organization produces.

The “Best Workplaces” list is now in its eighth year and includes a wide variety of businesses in King County – from hospitality, medical services, professional services, technology, retail, finance, government, arts and entertainment and others.

The organizations on this year’s list have put in place ways to be eco-friendly and sustainable. For example:

  • AMEC eliminated bottled water and traded disposable plates and utensils for dishes and silverware in the workplace.
  • PCC Natural Markets converts its food scraps into organic liquid fertilizer that is sold at its stores.
  • Taco Time Northwest recycled 51,270 gallons of cooking oil into 46,143 gallons of biodiesel fuel.

Shoreline honorees:

City of Shoreline

North City Water District

Ronald Wastewater District

Kenmore honorees:

Bastyr University
