Spokane provides a comprehensive solid waste collection and disposal system that stresses reduce, reuse, + recycle. Spokane County residents produce between 800 to 1,300 tons of solid waste each day, and divert only 45% of their waste through recycling or composting. In addition, recycling cart contamination has increased from 5 to 13% since 2012. Reducing waste generation is a big priority of the Regional Solid Waste System to keep costs down and keep solid waste management, well, manageable. We hope this website is useful and are glad to have you here as a resident of the City of Spokane!
