Load Truck Rules & Regulations
RATES. For a description and list of the Load Truck Rates, please click here.
SERVICE. Use of the Load Truck service does not replace regular weekly refuse service. The City reserves the right to decline the Load Truck service to any customer in its sole discretion.
WAIVER. The owner of the service address must sign the Load Truck Waiver and have it on file prior to scheduling. This form is valid only for the service address until the end of the year. A new customer acknowledgement must be filled out each calendar year for each property. We verify ownership with the Spokane County Assessor's website and may require additional proof of ownership or legal rights to the service address.
PLACEMENT. All items requested to be collected by the Load Truck must be out at either the curb or in the alley (if the alley is used by our trucks and not deemed “closed”) before 7:00 a.m. on the scheduled day. All items must be in one location.
ASSISTANCE. We are unable to go onto private property to haul items out to our truck. If you are unable to take your items to the curb or alley for the Load Truck to collect, please call Eastern Washington’s help line at 211 or toll free at 866.804.9060. This is a free service to help residents find a number of resources available in the Easter Washington area. This number is not associated with the City of Spokane.
LARGE ITEMS. Please disclose any large items when scheduling the load truck such as appliances or furniture. Please be as specific as possible. The limit is two (2) appliances per appointment unless approved in advance by a Supervisor or the Director of Solid Waste Collection.
HAZARDOUS WASTE. We are unable to accept Household Hazardous Waste (i.e., paint, oil, pesticides, and cleaners) with the Load Truck service. There is no charge to bring Household Hazardous Waste to the Waste-to-Energy Facility or either of the transfer stations. They do not accept Commercial Hazardous Waste. For more information on disposal of Commercial or Household Hazardous Waste, please call 509.625.7898.
NON-BURNABLES. We are unable to accept non-burnable items such as concrete, dirt and rocks.
CONSOLIDATE. Please make sure to have all longer items cut down to six (6) feet in length and have loose items bagged. This will reduce the amount of time it takes to load your items.
BILLING. All load truck charges are billed to the City of Spokane utility bill for the service address. The signing party is also jointly and severally responsible for said charges. The utility bill must be current or brought current prior to scheduling the Load Truck. All unpaid Load Truck charges are a lien against the property.
ILLEGAL DUMPING. The owner accepts the risk and responsibility for any illegal or illicit dumping.
