Waste Management Adjusts Service Schedules For 44,000 Spokane-Area Customers

SPOKANE, Wash. - Service days for garbage collection will change in May for 44,000 Waste Management customers throughout the greater Spokane County area. The changes will affect residential customers in the City of Spokane Valley, the City of Liberty Lake, the City of Millwood, and parts of Spokane County. Deer Park is not affected by the schedule adjustment.


"Providing consistent, high quality and efficient service is critically important to Waste Management," said Ken Gimpel, the company's municipal relations manager. "This change will allow us to improve the quality and efficiency of our service across the greater Spokane County area."

Under the new schedule, all Waste Management trucks will collect garbage (as well as recycling and yard debris, where provided) in a specific part of the community each day of the week. "By consolidating all routes in one part of the community each day of the week, we will improve quality and consistency of collection year-round and make it easier for drivers to work together to serve customers when winter weather presents challenges," Gimpel said.

What do I need to know?

▶       If you live in the Spokane County area and you are a Waste Management customer, your weekly collection service may be changing from one weekday to another.

▶       Waste Management will notify affected customers of their new collection day by letter and phone calls. Your driver will also place a new collection day reminder sticker on your garbage container.

▶       New collection days begin the week of May 16.

▶       Collection times may vary during this transition. To ensure uninterrupted service, please put containers at the curb by 6 am on your new collection day.   

▶       For a map showing the new service days, go to wmnorthwest.com.

For some customers, this transition may involve a one-time situation in which they will not have collection for more than the typical seven-day span. For customers who experience more than seven days between collections and have overflow garbage, Waste Management will collect a double load of garbage at no extra cost, on the first day of the new collection schedule.
