The City of Spokane is in Washington with Seattle and Tacoma to the west, Kennewick to the southwest, and Meridian to the south, Coeur d’Alene to the east.

  • Bedframes

  • Furniture (couches, love seats, recliners, etc.)

Unacceptable Items for Bulk Pickup

We are unable to accept Household Hazardous Waste (i.e., paint, oil, pesticides, and cleaners) with the Load Truck service. There is no charge to bring Household Hazardous Waste to the Waste to Energy Facility or either of the Spokane County’s transfer stations.

They do not accept Commercial Hazardous Waste. For more information on disposal of Commercial or Household Hazardous Waste, please call 509.625.7898.

We are unable to accept non-burnable items such as concrete, dirt and rocks.

Please make sure to have all longer items cut down to six (6) feet in length and have loose items bagged. This will reduce the amount of time it takes to load your items.

Have bulky items the city won’t pick up? You need a junk removal service.

If you have large items that the city won’t take from you, you may need to hire a junk removal service.

Junk removal services are not be as picky about the items they’re collecting so if the city won’t take the item, this may be your best bet. There’s usually a fee involved with junk removal but most companies can tell you ahead of time approximately what it’s going to cost.

There are a number of junk removal services in Spokane and I’m sure many of them will be able to help you out.
