Your plastic garbage bags don’t belong in green yard waste carts

Your plastic garbage bags don’t belong in green yard waste carts

The City of Spokane wants to remind you not to put leaves in plastic bags inside or next to green yard waste carts.

Yard waste carts with plastic bags are billed as garbage. Paper lawn and leaf bags can be purchased online or at most local home improvement stores.

You can also sign up for the City’s optional yard and food waste service that runs from March through November. The carts are emptied on the same day as garbage and curbside recycling carts. The material is composted at a local facility. The cost of the service is $16.33 a month, with no charge when the service is suspended for winter.
