The Office of Neighborhood Services and the Solid Waste Department are coordinating three weeks for free clean green dumpster events to help citizens with windstorm cleanup. For the next three weekends, the City will have dumpsters available at different areas of Spokane for the three council districts.

These events will be for clean green debris ONLY. Anything larger than three inches in diameter and root balls will not be accepted. Large pieces of debris are still being accepted for free at the Northside Landfill from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. through this weekend (Dec. 5 and 6).

The free clean green dumpster events will be held on a Saturday and Sunday for each council district. Geiger and DOC crews will be there to help citizens unload material.
