The City of Federal Way is accepting applications for the annual Business Recycler of the Year Award through the end of the year. This award recognizes local businesses that work to increase recycling, reduce the generation of waste and employ other sustainable practices.

Any Federal Way business, regardless of size, is eligible to apply. A winner will be selected in January 2014. The winner will be recognized at a February 2014 City Council meeting and also will be recognized on the city’s website.

If your business does not recycle yet, it’s not too late. Federal Way businesses can sign up for two free recycling carts through Waste Management, even if the landlord pays the garbage bill separately. Contact Waste Management directly at (800) 592-9995 or
