Scottsdale Brush and Bulk Pickup is currently running behind schedule. Summer months are the most challenging for crews as it is peak season for yard trimmings and there is simply more green waste to pickup. Add extreme heat and summer storms downing trees and it’s the most challenging time of year to do it. Crews are currently working in Zone 3 and will move to Zone 4 as soon as possible. Please continue to place brush and bulk items out as scheduled and we will do our best to catch up. Thank you for your patience.
