Each spring, businesses in King County outside of the City of Seattle are invited to apply for recognition as a Best Workplace for Waste Prevention and Recycling. This year, King County’s Solid Waste Division has named 112 local businesses to its ninth annual list of Best Workplaces, the highest number listed since the program began in 2007!
The 2015 list spans a wide array of businesses in King County – from education to transportation. Innovative recycling and waste reduction strategies run the gamut, from the customized raingear designed by Frito-Lay to protect their cardboard boxes for reuse, to the food waste focus of the Culinary Department’s curriculum at Renton Technical College, to Superior Seconds Gear Exchange’s commitment to refurbishing used sporting goods.
Each of the 2015 Best Workplace businesses listed has shown exceptional commitment to recycling and reducing the amount of waste their company sends to the landfill. Their actions help reduce the impacts of climate change and feed recycled materials back into the economy.
