Residents can dispose of their yard waste by using a composter or mulcher. City of Phoenix composters (constructed from old garbage cans) can be obtained at a city disposal facility for $5. Call 602-262-7251 for more information.
The city of Phoenix and its contractor can grind and process wood and green organics or yard waste (except palm fronds and oleanders). The city contractor operates a mulching processing plant on 20 acres of city-owned land located east of 35th Avenue and south of Lower Buckeye Road. Mulching green organics diverts these compostable materials from our landfill.
