Section 1. That there is adopted a new section 7.06.___ to chapter 7.06 of the
Spokane Municipal Code to read as follows:

7.06.174 Purchasing and Procurement Preference for Reusable Products,
Recycled-Content Products and Recyclable Products

A. All city departments shall purchase and/or use, where practicable, reusable
products, recycled-content products and recyclable products. The term
practicable shall mean that the product performs adequately for its intended use
and is available at a fair and reasonable price.

B. City departments shall purchase and/or use only recycled-content paper for all
imprinted letterhead, envelope and business card paper, file writing, photocopy
paper, packaging papers, and printing papers. The City shall purchase recycled-
content paper products through a single city department or a single purchase
agreement whenever possible in order to maximize savings for the City.

C. Departments shall publicize the Citys use of recycled paper by printing the
words Printed on Recycled Paper or a recycled content logo on all letterhead,
envelope and business card paper and on the title page of all reports printed on
recycled paper, or by using recycled paper which is watermarked with the
recycled content logo.

D. The City shall require, whenever practicable, its vendors, contractors, and
consultants to use reusable products, recycled-content products and recyclable
products. Failure of a vendor, contractor, or consultant to specify how it will
comply with this requirement may cause the City to determine that a bid is non-
responsive. Notice of the Citys intent to procure goods, services or public works
that comply with the provisions of this chapter regarding reusable products,
recycled-content products and recyclable products shall be included in all request
for bids or request for proposals.
