Map to Salt River Landfill

This program is designed as a convenience for single-family residential customers who just can't wait for their next scheduled week of brush collection. Through our agreement with the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community, Scottsdale residents, living in single family homes and paying for residential collection services, may haul up to 2,000 pounds of refuse, brush or bulk items generated from their property to the Salt River Landfill at no charge. The conditions outlined below must be met in order to use the landfill free of charge.

Please Note: If your load exceeds the 2,000 pound limit, or if you do not provide proper identification you will be billed by the landfill for the entire load at the rate of $38.00 per ton. The City does not make any full or partial reimbursements to residents for any charges assessed by the landfill for failure to comply with the rules and requirements of this program.

If you are an on-line Utility Bill payer, and you need to haul trash to the landfill, you will need to call a Utility Billing or Solid Waste Management location to receive a statement signed and authorizing use of the landfill. Either department will forward a copy to the landfill for your use. A print out of your on-line statement will not be accepted without an authorized signature.

If payment is required, only CASH will be accepted. No Checks or Credit/Debit cards will be accepted.
