King County offers tips to turn holiday season red and ‘green’

King County is encouraging revelers to turn the holiday season red and “green.”

The county Solid Waste Division launched the Green Holidays campaign at to educate consumers about how to cut waste, save energy and support the local economy during the holiday season.

The campaign covers holiday décor, entertaining, Christmas tree-cycling and more. The “green” motif also extends to cards, packaging and gift wrap.

Residents can dump grease from entertaining, for instance, at designated drop-off sites to avoid clogged pipes in the sewer system and recycle food scraps for composting.

Green Holidays also offers environmentally sound advice for donating to others during the holiday season. Participants can also enter a Green Holiday Drawing for a chance to score meals and other “experience” gifts.
