Solid Waste Department Requests Assistance From Customers

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE: The City of Spokane Solid Waste Management Department today is asking residents for their assistance during these snowy days. 

Residential customers are asked to place their garbage carts and recycling bins in front of snow berms and clear of other obstacles. 

Commercial customers are asked to remove show from around dumpsters and the access areas for those receptacles. Sanding icy areas next to dumpsters also would be helpful.

Meanwhile, some customers in the Five Mile area were missed by recycling trucks today, Wednesday, Dec. 1, because these lighter trucks had difficulty maneuvering in the area. Customers who were missed are asked to place their recycling bins out at the curb again on Thursday, Dec. 2.  A recycling crew will pick up the items then.

"The Solid Waste Department is committed to providing safe and reliable collection to our customers at all times of the year," says Scott Windsor, the department's director. "We apologize for any inconvenience, and we appreciate the help of our customers as we work to get this important job done."

If you have additional questions about your garbage service or curbside recycling, please call the Solid Waste Department at (509) 625-7878 or visit www.spokanesolidwaste.com.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - "He told me to pull over, and my jaw just dropped," a Spokane woman, who says a fake police officer tried to pull her over, doesn't want to be named. In fear, this could happen again. "It really scared me and kind of threw me off that night. I don't even want to drive by myself anymore," she said. She tells me that she was driving around North Spokane at night on her way home from work.

    Man accused of assault after putting wife with dementia on leash

    Tuesday, September 18 2018 10:40 AM EDT2018-09-18 14:40:20 GMT

    A Maryland man is facing a simple assault charge after using a dog leash to lead his wife around a Pennsylvania fair because she has late-stage dementia.    West Manchester police say Walter Wolford yanked the 8-inch long red nylon leash, causing his wife's head to jerk back and leave red marks around her throat. But the 66-year-old Hagerstown man says he only gently tugged on the leash, which he uses to keep his wife from getting lost.
