Waste Wise Hall of Fame - April 2010
The US Environmental Protection Agency’s (USEPA) Office of Resource Conservation and Recovery has selected Kitsap County for induction into the Waste Wise Hall of Fame. The award is given to two organizations each year for their outstanding achievements in waste reduction.

The program’s objectives are to reduce waste at its source, recycle more, use less toxic products, and purchase more environmentally preferred products. Those activities include such waste reduction strategies as revising forms to use less paper, going electronic with timecards and pay stubs, making double-sided copies, and performing more operations electronically instead of with paper, such as offering online applications and using laptops when performing fieldwork.

  Annual Report and Guidelines for Reducing Waste
  Waste Wise Kitsap on the web

In 2009, Kitsap County saved over $700,000 by recycling tires, asphalt, food and beverage containers, and paper products; and reusing such items as road sand, office products and ditch spoils. They also sent biosolids to a farm for land application and recycled electronics and mercury-bearing products such as fluorescent lights, thermostats, and batteries.

There are 2,700 members in the USEPA Waste Wise program, which is a free, voluntary program open to organizations, businesses, public agencies, and non-profits. According to the USEPA, Partners have prevented and recycled more than 160 million tons of solid waste since the program’s inception in 1994.
