Recycle more media campaign
"Be a better recycler" campaign
Although most King County residents in single family residences say they participate in their curbside recycling program, much of what they throw away could be recycled. King County has created a campaign to encourage King County residents to increase their recycling at home and also start putting food scraps and food-soiled paper in their curbside yard debris carts, to meet the county's goal of zero waste of resources by 2030.
