The Spokane Regional Clean Air Agency is hosting a natural yard waste drop off for residents of outlying areas of Spokane County. The event is aimed at deterring residents from burning debris which is prohibited in most of the county. There will be three drop off locations in Fire Districts 4, 9 and 10.
Each location will also host a free composting seminar. The seminar is provided by Spokane Master Composters/Recyclers. People who complete the training with Spokane County ID will receive a home compost bin. Each location will also offer a burn barrel exchange. Residents can exchange their prohibited burn barrels for a compost bin while supplies last.
Residents can drop off debris on Saturday, April 13, between 10 am and 3 pm.
