Lake Forest Park diverts landfill waste at twice the national average

Sunday, March 29, 2015

Lake Forest Park remains one of the best recycling cities in King County and the State of Washington.

Last year, residents recycled and composted two thirds of its curbside-collected material (the national average is 30 percent; LFP recycles more than twice the national average at 65 percent).

“We are excited by the trend,” said Aaron Halverson Environmental Programs Manager. “We continue to encourage recycling and have set 70 percent as our citywide residential recycling goal.”

“We continue to invest in our recycling processing facility to further expand recyclable items,” Janet Prichard of Republic Services said. Republic Services is the City’s environmental partner and operates the largest recycling processing facility in the Northwest.
