City of Issaquah receives state recycler award
April 9, 2013
Every year, the Washington State Recycling Association honors organizations, businesses and individuals for their outstanding recycling achievements, and on April 4 they shined a light on Issaquah’s efforts.
The association named the city the 2013 Innovative Recycler of the Year.
“The city of Issaquah, in partnership with Clean-Scapes, pioneered a new retail experience designed to help residents reduce waste and increase recycling,” the association said in a press release. “The ‘Rethinking Stuff Store’ offers recycled, recyclable and up-cycled goods, featuring durable housewares and gifts.”
Recyclers of the Year are selected by a panel of association members that come from many branches of the recycling industry, including collectors and processors, government agencies, businesses and nonprofit organizations.
An official awards banquet will be May 14 as part of the annual association conference at Skamania Lodge.
