Public Hearing August 14th
on Update of Recycling Service Level Areas

Commissioners will hold a public hearing on Tuesday, August 14, 2018, to
receive input on the expansion of the recycling service level areas. The

established in Spokane County Code, Chapter 8.58.) Residents may petition
the county for services and the county must evaluate these requests.
