I just spoke with Kim Ducote. She is asking Sustainable Renton to spread the word about an upcoming program being offered through King County offering FREE training for folks who are interested in Recycling and Composting. See the information below:

  1. This is awesome. Living in an apartment complex so few folks recycle, it’s a tragedy of the commons sort of thing. “I don’t have to do it, someone else will”

    1. Yes, there is a real need for apartment dwellers and owners to start composting and recycling. This particular certification concentrates primarily on residential recycling, however, knowing the need for education Sustainable Renton will be hosting an apartment composting/recycling workshop in the Fall, keep your eyes out for more info to come.
