County begins educational campaign

In King County, Washington, the Solid Waste Division launched its 2006 “Recycle more. It’s easy to do” education campaign, asking county residents to increase their recycling at home.

Although 87 percent of King County residents participate in curbside recycling program, more than two-thirds of what is currently taken to the county’s Cedar Hills Regional Landfill is readily recyclable.

King County garbologist Tom Watson discusses recycling options with homeowner Hitomi Taylor.

“This discrepancy points to the fact that while most of our citizens do recycle, we could all do a better job recycling,” said county executive Ron Sims.

Through research conducted in area homes, King County recycling experts found that most families understood what and how to recycle, but there were still items that they didn’t recycle because it was inconvenient to do so.

A promotional campaign supporting the “Recycle more. It’s easy to do” began in October and will run through May 2007.
