King County’s Solid Waste Division recently announced that 97 local companies have been named to the 2014 “Best Workplaces for Recycling and Waste Reduction” list, including 11 businesses/offices in Redmond. This is the highest number of businesses listed since the program began in 2007. The list recognizes businesses for their innovative recycling practices and commitment to reducing the amount of waste their company produces.
This year’s businesses adopted an array of creative recycling and waste reduction strategies, from creating liquid fertilizer out of food scraps to using electric delivery vehicles. I can offer interviews with King County Solid Waste representatives about business waste reduction, as well as contacts for Redmond businesses that made the list.
