Help Impove Garbage Pickup Routes

Help Impove Garbage Pickup Routes

The City of Spokane’s Solid Waste Collection Department is about to embark on a route optimization study for our garbage, recycling and clean green pickups. Direct input from neighborhood representatives like you could shape the outcome.

The purpose of the study and the ensuing route changes is to balance the routes, improve efficiency and implement cost savings without negatively affecting city customers. Some service day changes will be inevitable, therefore they will need your help determining outreach and other efforts.

In the next two to three weeks, Solid Waste Collection would like to meet with two neighborhood council representatives from each district and one at-large neighborhood representative to work on the study. Up to three meetings are anticipated over the next couple of months, preferably during business hours, but they might be able to take place outside business hours if necessary.

If you’re interested in representing Emerson-Garfield Neighborhood and the wider district as part of this short-term study, please e-mail your name and contact information to Emerson-Garfield Neighborhood Council co-chairs Carlie Hoffman and Tim Musser as soon as possible. You can reach them at
