Labor Day closures around Spokane, and what you can still do

SPOKANE, Wash. — Labor Day weekend is fast approaching! Whether you’re preparing for that final summer camping trip, or firing up the barbecue for a weekend at home, there are a couple closures you should know about.  

Spokane’s Waste-to-Energy Facility will be closed on Monday. As a result, garbage pickup and curbside recycling will be a day late all week, with Friday pickup planned for Saturday. 

Spokane County offices will also be closed Monday. That includes the Spokane County Courthouse, the Public Safety Building, Public Works Building, Veterans Services, and SCRAPS.

City employees won’t be available on Monday for customer service requests online or over the phone. You can learn more about service changes here

The Spokane County Sheriff’s Office, Crime Check, and other emergency services will remain open.

If you park downtown Monday, don’t worry about feeding the meter; Labor Day is a parking meter holiday, according to a release from the City. 

Plenty of services will still be available around town if you’re looking to spend a day with the family. You can book a tee time on one of the City’s golf courses, or go for a ride on the Gondola at Riverfront Park. 

According to the City, if you live in Spokane County, you can receive 50% off your ride. Just mention the ‘Local’s Only’ discount.

The Sky Ribbon Cafe will also be open, along with area parks as long as social distancing is practiced.
