Mercer Island business earns King County honors for waste reduction

Mercer Island's American Classic Homes was named to King County's Best Workplace for Waste Prevention and Recycling list.

The business was named as one of 21 businesses on the honor roll, given to businesses making the county's list for five or more years.

The business was named to the 2013 list for their work at reducing waste.

"Understanding that their industry is general paper heavy, the employees at American Classic Homes have switched to scanning, sharing and storing their paperwork through their online server," said the County's press release about the winners. "To further cut back on paper and printing supplies, they switched to a multi-use, central office copier/printer that keeps track of usage and efficiency."

In total, 89 businesses were named to the seventh annual list.
