Add more to the blue bin

The Spokane Regional Solid Waste System now accepts colored code 2 plastic bottles and jars in the blue curbside recycling bin. Previously, only non-colored code 2 plastic was accepted in the bins.

The easiest way to determine what kind of plastic container you are holding in your hand, is to turn it over and look for the number inside the triangle on the bottom of the container.

Code 2 plastic is often used for milk, bleach, detergent and shampoo containers. Tubs and dishes can’t be recycled in the blue bin at this time.

Containers that have been used for automotive products like oil and antifreeze, pesticides or other garden chemicals, can not be recycled. They should be put in the normal trash can or taken out to the transfer station by the Waste to Energy Plant.

Do you recycle in the blue bin? What do you wish you could recycle in the blue bin?

About this blog

Welcome to the South Perry neighborhood blog. My name is Pia Hallenberg and I’ve worked as a journalist in Spokane since the fall of 1998; for the last four years I’ve lived on South Perry Street.

I love the neighborhood so when time came to pick an area for The Spokesman-Review’s first neighborhood blog, the choice was simple: South Perry is where it’s at.
