Does your company recycle? Apply for Leadership in Recycling Award

The City of Federal Way Solid Waste and Recycling Division is accepting applications for the annual Leadership in Recycling Award until Nov. 1, 2010. This award recognizes local businesses that work to increase recycling, reduce the generation of waste and employ other sustainable practices.

Any Federal Way business, regardless of size, is eligible to apply. A winner will be selected by Dec. 31. The winner will be recognized at a January 2011 City Council meeting and also will be recognized on the City’s website.

Frito Lay’s Federal Way Distribution Center won the City’s 2009 inaugural Leadership in Recycling Award for its remarkable improvements in shipping container reuse, packaging recycling and composting, and on-site energy conservation practices.

If your business does not recycle yet, it’s not too late. Federal Way businesses can sign up for two free recycling carts through Waste Management, even if the landlord pays the garbage bill separately. Contact Waste Management directly at 800.592.9995 or www.wmnorthwest.com/fedway).

The Leadership in Recycling Award application and more information on business recycling can be found at www.cityoffederalway.com/recycling. Applications can be emailed to jeanette.brizendine@cityoffederalway.com, faxed to 253.835.2709, mailed to PO Box 9718, Federal Way, WA 98063-9718, or can be dropped off at City Hall, 33325 8th Ave S.
