Remove invasive plants
Residents are urged to contact Solid Waste at 480-312-5600 for more information or before any large clean-up or landscaping projects.
The City of Scottsdale will remove brush trimmings from residential properties for small clean-up projects on developed land only. Vegetation from washes, community common areas, undeveloped lots, and large projects is not the responsibility of City crews.
Scottsdale has created a brochure that outlines the top eight Invasive Weeds (PDF) identified to exist in the McDowell Sonoran Preserve. For a hard copy, please call the Scottsdale Fire Department at 480-312-8000.
