Bellevue wins Green City Award
April 3, 2012 · Updated 4:16 PM
The city of Bellevue has received a 2012 Green City Award from Waste & Recycling News. Bellevue won in the medium-sized category of 100,000 - 500,000 residents after being selected as one of nearly 100 nominees throughout the country.
A big part of Bellevue's campaign recycling has been the "Carbon Yeti," a large, hairy and wasteful creature and is shown learning ways to reduce its carbon footprint in a pledge book.
The Carbon Yeti's message has been credited with helping Bellevue residents recycle 68 percent of their waste.
