Resident Landfill Program

Resident Landfill Program

Through the city’s contract with the Salt River Landfilllinks to external site, residential solid waste customers may haul up to 2,000 pounds of trash, brush or bulk items to the landfill once per calendar week (Monday through Saturday) If you exceed one landfill use per calendar week, the charges will be reflected on your next utility bill. 

Landfill guidelines
