Phoenix is changing the way bulk trash is collected.

At City Council’s Transportation, Infrastructure, and Planning Subcommittee yesterday, the appointment-based bulk Trash system was presented, officials at City Hall report.

The new program offers residents the ability to schedule their own bulk trash collection, rather than waiting for quarterly bulk trash pickup during the dates assigned to their area, according to a press release.

Appointment-based bulk trash collection begins on Sept. 30, the release states.

Under the current bulk trash program, Public Works lays out a collection schedule for the entire year for 13 different regions across the city, giving each region four designated collection periods annually.

Customers now can schedule bulk trash pickup based on when they need it, rather than according to a citywide calendar. Residents will schedule a pickup date online.

The portal will offer available collection dates based on the customer’s address. Upon selecting a date, customers will get a text confirmation and can then begin to place their bulky items at the edge of their property no more than 7 days ahead of their pickup appointment.

Of Note: customers are allowed up to 10 cubic yards of trash per collection (approximately 17 ft. X 4 ft. X 4 ft.).

Customers are still allowed up to four bulk trash collections each year. General guidelines on bulk trash placement and permitted/prohibited items will remain the same.

Officials at City Hall say beginning Friday, Aug. 30, Phoenix residents can begin scheduling bulk trash appointments online
