UPDATE

11/20/15, 1 p.m.

We are extending free tree and yard waste storm debris disposal through Nov. 29.

---------

As citizens prepare to clean up after the huge windstorm, the City of Spokane wants to make that work a little easier.

For smaller yard waste material in residential neighborhoods, the City will extend the season for its curbside yard waste collection program for two additional weeks through Dec. 18.  Customers can place their yard debris from the storm in their green yard waste carts. Branches must be smaller than 3 inches in diameter. Curbside yard waste collection is a voluntary, subscription service.

For larger tree and yard waste material, the City will accept emergency storm debris for free at the Northside Landfill, 5502 W. Nine Mile Road. The facility will open from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. daily through Sunday, Nov. 22, to accept that material. Due to the large volumes of anticipated debris, all commercial customers should take storm debris to the Northside Landfill.

Additionally, residents can take larger storm debris to the Waste to Energy facility, 2900 S. Geiger Blvd., for free through Sunday, Nov. 22. That facility is open from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. The Spokane County Regional Solid Waste System also is accepting residential storm-related yard and tree waste for free at its North County Transfer Station, 22123 N. Elk-Chattaroy Road, and Valley Transfer Station, 3941 N. Sullivan Road, through Sunday. Hours for those facilities are 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Please note that the free disposal services are for clean green tree and yard waste, not shingles or other building materials.

Residents who need to clear storm debris from private property are encouraged to refer to the list of licensed arborists at spokanecity.org. Safety should be a priority; carefully inspect for downed power lines and gas leaks.
