For Phoenix Resident Disposal Customers
A resident customer paying full service monthly refuse/trash fees may receive disposal on one load of up to 1 ton (2,000 pounds) each calendar month at no charge upon complying with the following:
- Present a copy of their city services (water, sewage, trash) bill showing they have an active account paying full service refuse/trash fees that are current and not delinquent.
- Present photo I.D. with name or address matching the city services bill or account. No substitutions permitted.
Over 1 Ton
Residents' loads exceeding one ton will be required to leave a deposit and weigh out after dumping. The customer must pay the current gate rate of $42/ton for any material disposed in excess of one ton.
For Disposal Customers
All loads will be charged $42 per ton of disposal material ($25 minimum charge).
Both transfer stations accept cash and credit cards. Checks or money orders are not accepted.
Express Exit Disposal Permit Decal
All commercial/business customers must purchase an
Express Exit Disposal Permit Decal for each vehicle and use it for entrance into the disposal facility. Express Exit Disposal Permit decals are $5 each at the scale house.
Other disposal customers or customers not yet issued an Express Exit Disposal Permit decal:
- Will be required to leave a deposit. Note that credit and debit card deposits may be held and not released by the authorizing bank for as long as 30 days. This is a bank policy and not within the control of the city of Phoenix.
- Must weigh in and weigh out when entering and exiting the transfer station.
Customers may be directed by facility staff to sort their loads into specific areas when unloading for waste diversion and recycling purposes.
Boats and Spas
Boats and spas must be cut into fourths to avoid a $50 penalty fee. Must also bring registration or title to prove ownership.
Residents can purchase compost containers constructed from old garbage containers for $5. Please call ahead for availability. The transfer station cannot reserve a container for you. The containers are on a first-come, first-served basis.
Customers who frequently bring in vegetation only loads (green organics loads), free of trash, to the city transfer stations should consider enrolling in Certified Green Organics. Participating in this program can bring substantial money savings per load.
