Students Share the Magic of Recycling in a 2023 Calendar

“The Magic of Recycling!” More than 250 local students in grades K-8 entered the Spokane Recycles Poster Contest sponsored by the Spokane County Regional Solid Waste System. Their work, created to help raise recycling awareness in Spokane County, was based on the theme, “The Magic of Recycling!” Of all the entries, 30 grade-level finalists were selected to have their work highlighted in a fun and informative calendar for 2023.

A limited number of these calendars are now available free of charge from the City of Spokane Solid Waste Disposal Department. Call 509.625.6521 or email solidwaste@spokanecity.org to get your copy.

Congratulations to all the finalists!
