The City of Mesa offers curbside trash collection service to all Mesa single-family households. Barrels are available in a 60- or 90-gallon size and standard service includes once a week collection.
Additional trash barrels and service are available for an extra monthly charge.
Black barrel reminders:
- Bag and tie wet garbage, grass and animal waste in a plastic bag to maintain sanitary conditions and to prevent odors and the breeding of flies.
- Do not place the following items in the barrel:
- Hot ashes, cinders, coals or any other burning materials
- Mortar, concrete, plaster or other building materials
- Motor oil
- Toxic or hazardous material
- Unwrapped animal waste
- Maximize the use of your black barrel. If an item is accepted in Mesa's Blue Barrel Program, recycle it instead and save the extra space for non-recyclable items.
