Seattle food waste going to Kittitas County
SEATTLE (AP) The Seattle City Council approved a six-year contract Monday to send the city's food and yard waste to a compost plant in Kittitas County.
The Seattle Times reports the six-year contract with PacifiClean Environmental is worth $4 million a year.
The vote was delayed a week after a group of Kittitas County residents raised concerns about a proposed composting site in the scenic Elk Heights area.
The company is looking for a new site away from homes, rivers and the Mountains to Sound Greenway.
