Construction, demolition, and land clearing waste is largely inert, resulting from the construction, renovation, and demolitions of buildings, roads, and other man-made structures. The primary difference between demolition and inert waste is that demolition waste is considered susceptible to decomposition, where inert waste is considered resistant to decomposition. Transfer Stations and the Waste to Energy Facility accept construction/demolition waste at the regular garbage rate. This waste stream often includes:
- Salvaged components (doors, windows, plumbing fixtures)
- Trees, stumps, earth, and rock
Many construction and demolition materials can be recycled or reused. Visit the Spokane Waste Directory for more information.
