The City of Spokane Solid Waste Management Department is asking residents for assistance during these snowy days. Residential customers are asked to place their garbage carts and recycling bins in front of snow berms and clear of other obstacles. Commercial customers are asked to remove show from around dumpsters and the access areas for those receptacles. Sanding icy areas next to dumpsters also would be helpful.
Meanwhile, some customers in the Five Mile area were missed by recycling trucks today, Wednesday, Dec. 1, because these lighter trucks had difficulty maneuvering in the area. Customers who were missed are asked to place their recycling bins out at the curb again on Thursday, Dec. 2. A recycling crew will pick up the items then.
“The Solid Waste Department is committed to providing safe and reliable collection to our customers at all times of the year,” says Scott Windsor, the department’s director. “We apologize for any inconvenience, and we appreciate the help of our customers as we work to get this important job done.”
If you have additional questions about your garbage service or curbside recycling, please call the Solid Waste Department at (509) 625-7878 or visit www.spokanesolidwaste.com.
