      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.
