About Bulk Trash Pick-up
Bulk trash consists of materials that are too large and must not be placed in the garbage or recycling container. Materials such as furniture, large appliances and large amounts of vegetation are often considered bulk trash. Bulk trash is currently collected from city-serviced residences four times each year.
Please be aware that the weeks of bulk trash placement and collection can invite possible illegal dumping. It is important to stay vigilant and report any kind of suspicious activity to the police or the Public Works Department.

- Police Department at 9-1-1 (emergencies)
- Crime Stop at 602-262-6151 (non-emergencies)
