landfill items

Landfill containers are picked up weekly on the same day as curbside recycle container pick-up. The landfill containers are emptied in a separate truck from the recyclables to avoid contamination. Items from the landfill containers are brought to one of the two transfer stations in preparation to be hauled to the State Route 85 Landfill.


Container Placement Procedures

Place containers 4 feet apart.  

Trash and recycling containers must be 4 feet apart.

Bag and Tie. 

The bagging of garbage and grass is a requirement by Maricopa County to keep control of insects, rodents or other "vector" that can transmit diseases. Bagging also keeps control of odors as well as keeping the inside of your garbage container clean.

Keep a lid on it! 

City code requires residents to have lids on solid waste containers (garbage or recycling) secured to prevent rain, insects and blowing of garbage or recyclable materials throughout your neighborhood.

To ensure timely collection, containers must be placed curbside before 5:30 a.m. the day of pick up.  

Don't overload the bin

Save as You Reduce and Recycle (SAY R&R)

This program offers residents that currently have curbside trash pick-up service the option to downsize their current large trash container to a medium trash container for a monthly savings of $3 on their solid waste services bill. 

Customers are required to have curbside trash collection and be enrolled in the city's recycling program before they can sign up for the SAY R&R program.
