The Mariners and Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) are giving out free, Felix Hernandez-themed compost bins next week in hopes of that Seattle residents will cut down their holiday “wasteline.”
The “collector’s edition” kitchen caddies will be available at four locations Monday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. to those who pledge to recycle and compost more of their trash, according to a utilities release. Those sites are:
- Seattle Tilth – Good Shepherd Center Room 107, 4649 Sunnyside Ave. N, Suite 100, Seattle 98103
- CleanScapes – 117 S. Main St., Suite 300, Seattle 98104
- SE Neighborhood Service Center – 3815 S. Othello St., Suite 105, Seattle 98118
- SW Neighborhood Service Center – 2801 S.W. Thistle St., Seattle 98106-1479
According to SPU, Seattle residents helped divert more than 125,000 tons of food scraps and yard debris from landfills through composting last year.
