Celebrate recycling at Mobius Science Center

Thu., Nov. 7, 2013, midnight

The Spokane Regional Solid Waste System is celebrating its 17th annual recycling campaign in conjunction with America Recycles Day, Nov. 15.

The theme for the Spokane campaign is “I Want to be Recycled…”

Local events include:

• A display of the 30 finalists in the America Recycles Day poster contest for students in kindergarten through eighth grade. The posters will be on the second level of River Park Square through Nov. 15.

The winner will be announced at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday in the Spokane County Commissioners hearing room in the Public Works Building, 1026 W. Broadway Ave.

The Spokane Regional Solid Waste System will create a calendar using 17 of the images, which will be available in January.

• Celebrate Recycling Day is at Mobius Kids, 808 W. Main Ave., from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday.

Kids will be able to make a piece of recycled paper, explore a worm bin, complete a trash sort, and investigate the magnetic properties of metals.

Admission is $6 and free for 12 months and younger.
