Recycling just got easier

Posted by: Rebecca Durkin

For our University District neighbors…

Awesome news via our friends at the Greater University Chamber of Commerce:

“Starting in July, there will be new recycling bins next to the trash cans on the Ave below 45th ST. This pilot project conducted with Seattle Public Utilities is an attempt at becoming more green. Please take the time to locate and use the recycling bins.

The effectiveness of these bins will be evaluated after 90 days, after which the decision will be made to either expand the program or remove the bins altogether. Your support in this endeavor to make the U-District more green would be greatly appreciated.”

I’m excited to have more convenient recycling in our neck of the woods, and I hope you are too. Let’s all promise to put those bins to use and hopefully this program will stick around for good!
