Cedar Grove hosts neighborhood scavenger hunt

Starting this week, Cedar Grove Composting and Seattle Public Utilities are putting on a city-wide scavenger hunt in order to thank Seattle residents for composting over 125,000 tons of food and yard waste in 2011. The scavenger hunt consists of daily clues on Cedar Grove’s website, which will lead participants to find “Corey the Compostable Apple Core,” posted at 30 different retail and community sites in the city. The contest is called The Big Dig, and goes through April 11.

Cedar Grove says every participant that finds one or more Coreys will win a coupon redeemable for a free bag of Cedar Grove Compost. And, “all participants will be entered into a daily drawing to win a pass to participate in The Big Dig finals on Saturday, April 14 at Seattle Tilth’s Rainier Beach Urban Farm and Wetlands.” Then, the finalists will dig through 30 yards of compost to find $6,000 in hidden treasures, including a $3,000 yard makeover.

From Cedar Grove:

There are two Coreys hidden near your neighborhood. Here are their corresponding clues:

  • Uff-da! You’ll find Corey right next door to the library.
  • Touted for great service and great deals, this mineral-based company across from the Ballard Blocks gives your garden an instant makeover.
