Environmental Services Office and Transfer Stations Closed on Jan. 1, 2018
SPOKANE COUNTY, December 29, 2017 – In observance of New Year’s Day, Spokane County’s Environmental Services Department will be closed on Monday, Jan. 1, 2018. The closure will include all three transfer stations in the Spokane County Regional Solid Waste System. However, please note that both the department’s main office at 1026 W. Broadway and the transfer stations (North, Valley and the Waste-to-Energy Facility) will be open during regular business hours (8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.) on Tuesday, Jan. 2, 2018.
If your plans for the weekend include a to-do list, remember that whether you’re taking a ‘clean green’ Christmas Tree or ratty old furniture to the transfer station (i.e. ‘the dump’), you need to cover and secure the load with tarps, bungee cords or rope. Otherwise, you run the risk of items flying out of your pickup and creating litter…or worse…landing on the vehicle behind you, which could cause a serious accident and injuries that could result in civil and/or criminal charges.
