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:

  • The Guard House at the city's Corporation Yard facility at 9191 E. San Salvador. Major cross streets are Via Linda and 91st Street.
  • The parking lot of District 1 Police Headquarters at 7601 E. McKellips Road (southeast corner of Miller and McKellips roads).

Call the Police Department at 480-312-5000 in an emergency situation.
