Ballard and Wallingford crowned winners for Seattle Think Green Challenge

Posted by Danielle Anthony-Goodwin on December 30th, 2016


Neighbors in Seattle’s Northwest neighborhoods came together over the last six months to waste less and recycle more as part of Waste Management’s Think Green Reuse and Recycling Challenge.

The Northwest region, led by efforts from organizations such as the Wallingford Community Council and Sustainable Ballard, hosted the most activities during two months of the challenge, securing them a grant of $3,000 which will go towards projects to benefit the region conducted by local non-profits.

The Seattle neighborhoods held Goodwill and polystyrene foam collection events, and provided containers and signage for recycling and yard and food waste collection in public areas.

Residents in Seattle who have Waste Management as their service provider for recycling, composting and garbage were given the chance to win big for their community and the planet through either waste reduction activities or community education and involvement.

    Big whoop. Yet most of these fine yupsters are also the biggest morons in SF North. Easily offended dog parents, their nannies, and new Tesla, next on Oprah.

    You need to kill time, you’d have time to look these kids active. Refer to our website. Hope you get the most comfort.

    @Slim Whitman
    Yep. These idiots let Murray flood the neighborhood with nasty lifer hobos and addict thieves while preaching about “going green”.

    Neat. These same folks lobby tirelessly for a min wage raise (which has some merit, admittedly) while refusing the acknowledge the increased burden put on service workers who have to deal with aggro tweakers on a daily basis.

    Pretty sure most these Prius Doggie Parents don’t have to routinely bounce junkies out a biz bathroom, because if they did, there would be blogs about yoga for “occupational ptsd” or some crap.
