The Seattle Think Green Challenge organized by Waste Management partnered with neighborhood organizations to challenge 3 Seattle regions to reduce waste and recycle more.
Over the past six months, neighborhoods hosted polystyrene foam collection events and provided containers and signage for recycling and yard and food waste collection in public areas. Seattle residents serviced by Waste Management for recycling, composting and garbage competed to win through either waste reduction activities or community education and involvement.
Led by the Wallingford Community Council and Sustainable Ballard led Goodwill, the Northwest region hosted the most activities during the challenge and secured a grant of $3,000 which will go towards projects to benefit the region conducted by local non-profits.
