Where do your old blue city recycling bins end up? Here’s where

In the next week The SR will give readers a close-hand view of the new Waste Management SMaRT recycling center, at 2902 S. Geiger Blvd.

That's where the county's residents are sending their recycables, now being collected in those new blue single-stream curbside bins.

Among the tons of garbage being processed there are the old blue bins that Spokane city residential waste customers were using. Here's how they look when squashed and baled. The bales will go to regional recyclers for reuse.
