CART SIZES. The City of Spokane charges a monthly fee for your garbage service which is based on the size of container and the amount of garbage that will fit into it with the lid closed. Carts containing garbage extending beyond the top of the cart so that the lid does not close will be billed as overloaded.   We offer three cart sizes:

When using a non-city issued can, it is possible that the can will fall into the truck and not be retrievable. This happens because the grabbers on the truck are designed to pick up our containers. The City of Spokane will not be responsible for any damaged or lost non-city issued cans. Please use at your own risk!

DIRTY CART? Customers are responsible for keeping their city issued carts clean and sanitary. If you wish to have the city replace your existing cart with a clean one, there is an additional fee to have it exchanged.

Clean 32 gallon cart - $11.21 each

Clean 68 gallon cart - $16.82 each

Clean 95 gallon cart - $22.42 each
