Get Educated on Composting Benefits

Food waste collection is now in full swing with Seattle apartment and condo properties!

The benefits are twofold – not using that garbage disposal reduces plumbing repairs and sewer backups plus you’re reducing the amount of waste going to the landfill.

Composting those food scraps doesn’t have to be a pain. Property managers can order free educational posters, flyers, decals, and DVDs at www.seattle.gov/util/recyclingeducation or by calling 206-684-8717 and pressing #1. We’ll also conduct a training at your apartment or condo. Just call the same number and press #2.

Seattle properties of five or more units are also eligible for a one-time Friend of Recycling and Composting $100 credit. Take advantage of this offer by calling 206-684-7665 or going to www.seattle.gov/util/apartmentfoodwaste.
