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.

Please note, there are specific guidelines for Desert Broom and Salt Cedar removal (PDF). 

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.

Need help? Follow the Home Safety Checklist (PDF) or call to schedule a free safety inspection. Scottsdale’s firefighters will inspect your property and advise you of ways to protect your home and property from a brush fire. Fire department representatives can also provide information about low and high risk vegetation.

You can schedule a free brush safety inspection or report an unsafe construction site, by calling the Scottsdale Fire Department at 480-312-1855.
