Beacon Cleaners, Spokane Commute Trip Reduction get clean air awards

Spokane's Beacon Cleaners & Laundry and the Spokane County Commute Trip Reduction program were recognized for clean-air efforts this week by the Spokane Regional Clean Air Agency.

The awards are part of the agency's Clean Air Award program, which recognizes efforts by businesses to reduce air emissions.


Beacon Cleaners & Laundry was cited for installing technology that has led to it being designated as the only EnviroStars certified dry cleaner in Spokane County.


Spokane County's Commute Trip Reduction (CTR) office was chosen for the inaugural Clean Air Champion Award. The new award recognizes outstanding contributions resulting in clean air programs, increased public understanding or new policies to improve air quality.


Spokane County's CTR program has said it has eliminated nearly 6,400 vehicle trips each day in Spokane County.
