Farallon Receives Waste Prevention and Recycling Honor

July 24, 2015

Farallon has been honored by the King County Solid Waste Division as a Best Workplace for Waste Prevention and Recycling.  The significant impact made by the local businesses selected for their commitment to reducing waste sent to the landfill was acknowledged by King County Executive Dow Constantine:  “These companies deserve special recognition for demonstrating their ingenuity and commitment in preventing waste.”

As part of its “Going Greener” program, Farallon continuously examines its business practices for more-sustainable and greener options.  Farallon’s almost-paperless invoicing, reporting, and filing systems; recycling initiatives; and composting efforts across all locations have resulted in a reduction of approximately 400 pounds of waste per month.  Biking and using public transportation, and cleaning up local roads, parks, and greenbelts also are routine activities for Farallon staff.

Farallon’s Green Initiative lead Emerald Erickson-Mulanax commented, "In the last 4 years since starting the Going Greener program, we as a company have really made an effort to be more green.  It is gratifying to see Farallon's environmental efforts recognized by the County."
