Waste Management at Ames Farm Center: A Sustainable Approach

Waste To Energy

Ames Farm Center is proud to announce its cutting-edge Waste to Energy Plant in Spokane. Our state-of-the-art facility has now expanded its services to include the disposal of fire-damaged materials that are recognizable and free of ash, provided they are accompanied by an asbestos survey. By embracing technological advancements and environmentally friendly practices, we are revolutionizing waste management in Spokane.

A Convenient and Eco-conscious Solution

Spokane County residents now have access to three convenient drop-off locations for their waste. The Waste to Energy Facility, conveniently situated at 2900 S. Geiger Blvd, functions as a one-stop destination to recycle, dispose of household hazardous waste, yard debris, and trash efficiently. Our facility operates seven days a week, from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., ensuring accessibility for all.

Waste Disposal Made Easy

At the Waste to Energy Facility, operated by the City of Spokane, residents can drop off various materials for free. We accept clean and dry recyclable items such as glass bottles, aluminum cans, paper, and certain plastic containers. Our aim is to minimize waste and promote the responsible handling of recyclable materials.

Keeping Spokane Clean

In addition to our facility, Spokane County operates two transfer stations: the North County Recycling & Transfer Station, located at 22123 N. Elk-Chattaroy Road, and the Valley Recycling & Transfer Station, conveniently situated across from the Spokane Industrial Park on 3941 N. Sullivan Road. These stations offer additional disposal options for Spokane County residents.
