Residential Service

Residential Schedule

binsThe City provides residential customers with a 68-gallon container that has a serial number, which is assigned to the property owner’s water meter. Containers are picked up once per week and must be placed at the curbside or alley on collection day by 6:00 a.m., and removed by the end of the day:

Pickup day (Trash and Recycle):

  • Monday
  • Tuesday
  • Wednesday
  • Thursday
  • Friday

If you move, the container stays at the residence. If one container does not meet your needs, additional containers are available for a fee. The container must be placed a minimum of three feet from any obstruction such as a mailbox, fence or lamppost and a minimum of 15 feet from parked vehicles. All waste must be bagged and the lid of the container must be closed. This prevents the breeding of flies, reduces the risk of damage to the container, and helps to reduce litter in our neighborhoods. All waste to be collected must be placed in the container – the driver will not exit the truck to load excess material.

The following items may not be placed in the containers:

  • Large quantities of dirt, rock, sod or concrete
  • Large appliances or furniture
  • Hot ashes or hazardous materials (liquid paints, petroleum products, etc.)
  • Construction debris; tires
  • Any large items which prohibit the container lid from closing

If you have any questions regarding residential or commercial service, please call the Transfer Station at 928-777-1116 between the hours of (Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, Closed).
