Seattle City Council Approves New Recycling Measures

Seattle — The Seattle City Council has approved a series of initiatives aimed at boosting the city’s recycling rate. According to The Seattle Times, one of the approved measures would allow residents to place vegetable waste in yard-debris containers, which would be collected by the city and taken to a composting facility. Another would allow restaurants to have the bulk of their food waste taken to a composting facility rather than a landfill. A third initiative would provide curbside collection of paper set aside for recycling by small businesses. The measures await the signature of the mayor.
