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:
    • Dirt
    • 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.
