King County Solid Waste Division officials seek nominees for the fourth-annual Best Workplaces for Recycling and Waste Reduction list.

The award spotlights businesses with strong recycling, reuse and waste-prevention efforts. The list, formed in 2007, recognizes the accomplishments of small and large businesses for conserving natural resources, as well as reducing the amount of recyclable materials headed to landfills.

“King County businesses are not only helping conserve resources and protect the environment, but they’re also cutting costs when they cut waste,” Program Manager Karen May said in a news release. “Many of the best practices for resource management are really easy to do.”

Businesses operating in King County outside of Seattle can apply. Complete the application at http://your.kingcounty.gov/solidwaste/garbage-recycling/apply-best-workplaces.asp. Entries must be submitted by May 24. The list will be announced in June.
