Retirement community recognized for waste reduction efforts
July 29, 2014
King County’s Solid Waste Division recently honored Spiritwood at Pine Lake for adopting business practices that reduce waste and increase recycling, naming them one of their Best Workplaces for Waste Prevention and Recycling for 2014.
Spiritwood implemented recycling and composting throughout its community in which both residents and staff actively participated to reduce their carbon footprint. The program has been successful in reducing their garbage waste by half.
