Snoqualmie Fire Department Targets Zero Waste
At this year’s Annual Pancake Breakfast and Silent Auction, environmental sustainability was a core value for the Snoqualmie Fire Department. In partnership with Waste Management, the goal was to reduce the amount of waste produced at the event to as low as zero. Only short by 4%, the breakfast resulted in a highly successful diversion rate of 96% – thanks to the green choices made – which included compostable plates, utensils, coffee cups, and place mats, in addition to reusable decorations. Way to go! A complete report is posted on the City of Snoqualmie website.
