Tribe seeks junk vehicles for crushing cleanup program
Folks on the Colville Indian Reservation who have junk vehicles can arrange to have them crushed through a tribal cleanup program, according to land use shoreline administrator Pete Palmer.
"The car crusher has arrived (on) the Colville Indian Reservation to start their summer sweep of junk vehicles," she said.
The mobile crushing operation arrived a couple weeks ago in the Keller area and will remain there for another three of four weeks, Palmer said. After that, it will move on to the transfer site on Hall Creek Road in the Inchelium area.
Next up will be the Nespelem/Coulee Dam area around mid-July and Omak after that.
People wanting to get rid of junk or inoperable vehicles are asked to contact the tribal planning department, 634-2570, to be added to the pickup list.
"If you have the means to haul or tow your junk vehicle(s) to the crushing site in Nespelem on School Loop Road, please feel free to contact tribal planning and we will arrange for your access into our impound site for drop off," Palmer said. "That is only if you cannot wait until mid-July when the crusher gets (to Nespelem)."
