Want to learn how to divert food waste and save money? The Spokane County Regional Solid Waste System (SCRSWS) offers free waste consultations to businesses, schools, and hospitals.
Pro-active companies often can lower disposal costs by finding ways to identify and change wasteful practices and by recycling more. Much of the general waste businesses throw away as garbage could be hauled away and recycled at a much lower cost.
Free waste consultations are offered to Spokane businesses. Call 509-477-6800 for more information.
