From staff reports:

The Federal Way Solid Waste and Recycling Division is seeking applications for the annual Leadership in Recycling Award until Dec. 31. This award recognizes local businesses that increase recycling, reduce waste and employ other sustainable practices.

Any Federal Way business, regardless of size, is eligible to apply. A winner will be selected in early January and the award will be presented at an upcoming city council meeting. The winning business will be featured on the city's website. Applications can be emailed to recycle@cityoffederalway.com

Village Green Retirement Campus won the city’s 2010 Leadership in Recycling Award for implementation of food scrap recycling, improved recycling access for all residents, as well as its ongoing dedication to sustainability.

All Federal Way businesses can sign up for two free recycling carts through Waste Management, even at sites where a landlord pays the garbage bill separately. To order free recycling carts, contact Waste Management directly at (800) 592-9995 or www.wmnorthwest.com/fedway.
