Nearly 350 individuals have dropped off more than 85 tons of storm debris to the Waste to Energy Facility and two transfer stations, taking advantage of the City’s free clean green storm debris disposal offer that ends Sunday.

About two thirds of the 85.55 tons of clean green storm debris has been taken to the North County Transfer Station.

Individuals should inform the transfer station employee as they enter the facility that they are disposing of clean green storm debris. The temporary free service doesn’t include logs, roofing, vinyl fencing, or similar materials. Free disposal is available for individuals only, not commercial landscaping and yard care businesses.

Yard debris from the storm will be accepted through close of business on Sunday. These facilities are open from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Here are the addresses for the facilities:

  • North County Transfer Station, 22123 N. Elk-Chattaroy Road
  • Waste to Energy Facility, 2900 S. Geiger Blvd

Normally, the cost for disposal is $5 for up to 220 pounds of material and 47 cents for each additional 20 pounds. Yard debris from the storm also can be placed in green yard waste carts. Branches must be smaller than 3 inches in diameter. Curbside yard waste collection is a voluntary, subscription service, and regular fees still apply.

If residents need assistance with tree trimming work after the storm, the City’s Urban Forester recommends hiring a tree service that is licensed, bonded, insured and employs ISA Certified Arborists.

Here’s a list of City of Spokane licensed and certified commercial arborists:
