Tempe Mixed Waste Collection

Beginning in January 2015, residents will receive mixed bulk trash pickups every other month. This material is too big to fit in your regular trash bin. All of it is taken to the landfill.

Green Organics

The city has also reinvented its Green Organics program, which turns most yard waste into nutrient-rich compost. These optional pickups will occur seasonally, in spring, fall and winter, to coincide with the growing and trimming seasons. There will be a total of 3 pickups each year. Instead of going to the landfill, this material is taken to the city's composting facility where it is recycled.

Make a mental note to park your car(s) in your driveway in order that the sweeper can do a thorough job. Thanks!
