To help keep Spokane clean and safe, weekly garbage collection within the city limits is required for all occupied residences. Brown carts are provided to each household to collect garbage and place out on the curb for pickup.
Residents can choose the size of garbage cart that meets their needs. Rates are based on cart size.
An extra bag, can or box of garbage will be picked up for $4.36. Get more information on the Utility Rates page.
Bulk items & large loads: We have a variety of dumpsters you can rent on a temporary basis. We also have a special truck (the Load Truck) that we will load and haul your bulk items or large loads to a disposal facility.
Temporary dumpsters come in four sizes and can be rented for two days to six months, depending on your needs. Smaller dumpsters can be delivered the next business day, while larger ones take a couple of business days. Within the City of Spokane, use of temporary dumpsters from companies other than the City of Spokane Solid Waste Collection is prohibited. You can get more information by calling 509.625.7956 or by downloading our 2021 Temporary Dumpster Rental Form (PDF 1.3 MB).
The load truck can haul off bulk items or very large loads. You can order the truck to pick up your items and dispose of them. If you need information on the Load Truck, call 509.625.7881 or download our 2021 Load Truck Form (PDF 381 KB)
