Waste Management named Recycler of the Year

Washington State Recycling Association recognizes Auburn’s recycling partner for innovative recycling outreach

The City of Auburn’s recycling partner has won top honors for its innovative work to make recycling inclusive and accessible, particularly for multifamily and multicultural communities.

Waste Management has been named Recycler of the Year by the Washington State Recycling Association (WSRA). The award honors Waste Management’s work to educate and engage all members of the community in sustainability programs.

“Educating and involving all Auburn residents in waste reduction and recycling is key to helping the City of Auburn achieve its sustainability goals,” said Mary Evans, area director for Waste Management – Pacific Northwest.

“Waste Management has stepped up to the challenge with award-winning programs that use multiple touch points and materials tailored for the community,” Evans said. “Our expertise has been uniquely important to increasing participation in apartment and condominium communities, where recycling rates are often lower than recycling rates for single family homes.”

Waste Management has provided recycling and garbage services for the City of Auburn for 19 years. The company operates a hauling facility, a recycling facility and a compressed natural gas (CNG) filling station in the city. For more information, go to wmnorthwest.com.
