SWS Municipal Accounts


SWS has been doing business with municipalities for over 30 years. We have developed relationships through honesty and consistency. Our reputation is evident throughout Washington, Idaho, Montana and Oregon. Our goal is to make your operation look good and work well. Our repeat customers make this commitment evident.

We consistently work within the rules that municipalities must go by in order to do business.

We have the largest inventory of in-stock parts in the northwest. We carry parts at both our locations in Spokane and Tacoma. Our four acre, 30,000 square foot facility in Spokane and our shop in Tacoma are consistently busy with street, waste and sewer equipment being readied for delivery. We have a fleet of service trucks and trained service technicians.


The WA State Refuse Equipment Contract allows any WA state Entity to purchase directly from the Contract rather than going out to bid. The contract is based off of trash compactors and recycling balers, but there are other items that can also be purchased off the contract. Please contact your local SWS representative for details on what qualifies and, to get equipment quotes.

There are specific deep discounts that SWS Equipment and Washington State agreed on after SWS won the refuse equipment bid in 2011. All the work has been done, so purchasing is made very easy for State Entities. And you can be sure you are receiving quality refuse equipment – at a discounted price.

Examples of entities that are able to take advantage of this great deal are:

  • public schools
  • colleges
  • department of transportation
  • parks & recreation
  • prisons
  • city public works departments
  • state hospitals
  • airports
  • convention centers
