What can I recycle at the transfer stations?

Reducing waste by recycling is one of the Spokane County Regional Solid Waste System’s main objectives. There are many options for recycling in our area, and recycling can reduce your costs. Due to recent market shifts, sorted recyclables have a higher value than comingled recyclables. New cleanliness standards have been imposed on recycling worldwide, resulting in much higher processing costs for commingled recycling. With your help, we can bypass these unsustainable processing costs and keep recycling available for County residents at our transfer stations. We are asking residents for their help in returning to the practice (pre-2015) of sorting recyclables when dropping them off at the transfer stations. Each of these items will have to be sorted into their designated groups before drop-off:

  • Glass
  • Plastics, Nos. 1 and 2
  • Flattened cardboard
  • Magazines, cereal boxes, paper bags and egg cartons
  • Colored paper and manila envelopes
  • White office paper and newspaper
  • Tin cans and scrap metal
  • Aluminum cans
