Sandbags

The city provides sandbags free of charge to Scottsdale residents in emergency situations and when significant storms are forecast.

Citizens need to show a current utility bill to verify Scottsdale residency. There is a limit of 10 sand bags per household.

We provide sand, bags and shovels - but be ready to fill your own bags.

Bags are provided at two locations:

  • Scottsdale Corporation Yard facility (9191 E. San Salvador)
    Near Via Linda and 91st Street
    Sandbags/sand will be available in the parking lot of the inspection services building, which is east of the guard shack on San Salvador Drive (map)
  • District 1 Police Headquarters (7601 E. McKellips Road)
    Southeast corner of Miller and McKellips roads
    Sandbags/sand will be available in the parking lot (map)

Call the Police Department non-emergency line at 480-312-5000 for more information.
