Outstanding recyclers needed for Recycling Superstar contest
August 31, 2010
King County needs a hero — a Recycling Superstar, to be exact.
The county Solid Waste Division asks residents to submit stories about how well they recycle as part of the inaugural Recycling Superstar contest.
Enter the contest here. Entrants must submit a description of stellar recycling habits for a chance to win one of many prizes, including Seattle Sounders FC tickets, a Victoria Clipper trip, a getaway to Friday Harbor or a night at the Roosevelt Hotel in Seattle. The top five entrants will win prizes.
Entrants can submit video or photos alongside the description. Entries must be received by Sept. 14. The contest is open only to King County residents outside of Seattle.
Entries will be judged by a panel of local recycling experts based on accuracy and level of recycling effort, creativity and detail. Local merchants donated the prizes.
Most King County residents participate in a curbside recycling program; more than half of what ends up in Cedar Hills Regional Landfill south of Issaquah could be recycled instead.
