Spokane Materials and Recycling Technology (SMaRT) Center

Spokane Materials and Recycling Technology (SMaRT) Center opened in 2012, paving the way for convenient, efficient collection of mixed recyclables from tens of thousands of businesses and residences in Washington, Idaho and British Columbia.

Facility Details

Waste Management invested $18 million in its single stream recycling facility located on an 8-acre site in the City of Spokane. The SMaRT Center can process 100,000 tons of recyclables per year and is the centerpiece of a regional strategy aimed at dramatically reducing waste and boosting recycling in the area. The 62,000-square-foot, "single stream" facility allows residents and businesses to recycle a broader assortment of materials, resulting in dramatically higher recycling and diversion rates.

The site accepts many types of materials including single stream "all in one" recyclables as well as mixed residential and commercial recyclables. The site is not open to the public for drop off.
