Celebrate Earth Week by learning how to reduce waste while improving your soil! Discover the benefits of home composting at the annual Spring Compost Fair. Due to health concerns around large gatherings, the Spokane County Master Composters/Recyclers will host their annual Spring Compost Fair in an online event.
For one week, Spokane County residents can get great home composting tips in a virtual class and earn a free compost bin if they complete it successfully. There will also be an opportunity to talk live with a Master Composter/Recycler for those who have more questions on Saturday, April 24 at 10 a.m.!
The virtual class will take place on a learning platform called LearnWorlds. If interested, you will need to go the City’s solid waste online training page and enroll by creating a log-in and password. By choosing the Virtual Spring Compost Fair 2021 link when the event opens on Saturday, April 17, participants can then access the content, but not before.
Once you are signed up you can watch videos, read content, and take a very short quiz about composting any time between Saturdays, April 17 and 24. A live webinar the morning of Saturday, April 24 is for those who want to learn more and ask questions of an expert.
After submitting and passing the compost fair quiz, participants can download a coupon which can be redeemed for a free compost bin. You must be a Spokane County resident to get the bin, IDs will be checked at pickup, and there is a limit of one per household. Coupons can be redeemed at the Waste to Energy Facility’s Administration Building, 2900 S. Geiger Boulevard between the hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. the week of Monday, April 26 or by special arrangement.
