A Green Team is a group that takes on a project to prevent waste at school, at home or in the community. Funding and other assistance are available to complete these projects.

Are you willing to take on projects to help the environment become a cleaner, greener place?

If so, register to become a King County Green Team and take action to reduce waste.

Earn recognition for your actions.
