NOTICE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and its negative impact on the City’s budget, temporary measures have been implemented to aid in uninterrupted trash service during this time.  There will be no change to your trash or recycle collection days.  However, blue recycle and green yard waste barrels will be collected by the same truck and this material will be temporarily landfilled.  Residents are asked to please continue to only place accepted items in the correct barrel to avoid contamination when recycle services resume to normal operation. 

During this temporary change in servicing both the blue recycle and green yard waste barrels with the same vehicle, barrel collection service times will be impacted.  To avoid any missed barrel service, residents should place their barrels out for collection after 6 p.m. the night before or no later than 6 a.m. on your normal recycle service day.  This will ensure your recycle barrels are serviced each week. To schedule a special pickup for non-serviced barrels due to late set out, please call Customer Service at (480) 644-2221.  Additional fees will apply.
