Seattle Sending Waste To Kittitas County

A new compost plant is in the works for Kittitas County.

The Seattle City Council approved a six year contract to have Seattle's food and yard waste hauled by truck to Kittitas County.

PacifiClean Environmental is in charge of finding a site and building a 4 million dollar compost plan somewhere within the county.

The new plant is expected to be up and running in one year.
