[ARCHIVED] Compost Fair is FREE on Saturday, April 30th.

**********************************************

COMPOST FAIR IS BACK SATURDAY, APRIL 30

Spokane County participants to receive free compost bin

**********************************************

The Spokane County Master Composters/Recyclers will host its semi-annual Compost Fair at the Finch Arboretum on Saturday, April 30, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. The Compost Fair is held in conjunction with the City of Spokane’s Arbor Day Celebration. Attendees interested in a free compost bin must arrive by 1:30 p.m. to complete all of the compost fair activities by the 2 p.m. close. 

 

Participants will learn how to create compost using the “clean green” materials that result from their spring yard work and landscape trimming as well as the types of food scraps that can be included in a backyard compost pile. Activity stations will provide hands-on experience and lots of information on the materials that can be composted, types of bins to use, and how to build and turn a pile. The finished compost is excellent material to recycle back into yards and gardens. 

 

The fair is free and open to everyone. Participants who live within Spokane County can receive a free plastic compost bin after completing the activity stations. There is a limit of one bin per household, and proof of residence is required. 

 

The bins are provided through grant funds from the Washington State Department of Ecology. The Master Composters/Recyclers is a volunteer program sponsored by the Spokane County Regional Solid Waste System. 

 

For more information on the Compost Fair, call 625-6580. The John A. Finch Arboretum is located at 3404 West Woodland Boulevard. For more information on the Spokane County Regional Solid Waste System, call 477-6800 or go to www.spokanecountysolidwaste.org.
