Bulk Item Collection

Residents paying for city-provided solid waste services can schedule a free recycling and/or trash bulk pick up at their front curb every six weeks. Residents can also self-haul to the Recycling-Solid Waste Collection Center throughout the year. For more details call 480-782-3510.

Bulk collection CANNOT be scheduled via email.

For Chandler residents who do not pay for City-provided solid waste services, call Solid Waste Services at 480-782-3510 for information about alternatives to meet disposal needs.

Please consider donating household items with reuse value. There are many local charitable groups offering curbside collection for items often discarded as trash, and they offer a tax deduction for your generosity.

How do I schedule a curbside bulk collection? 
The ratepayer must call to schedule the curbside bulk collection prior to setting out items at the curb. Call 480-782-3510 for details and requirements. Services CANNOT be scheduled via email or by a third party not listed on the ratepayer's account.

Can I schedule a bulk collection to be picked up in the alley?
No. Per Chandler City Code, Chapter 44-6.4:  "... Bulk materials shall only be collected if placed along the right-of-way behind the curb, on the property of the covered residence. Bulk materials to be collected shall not be collected when placed in public or private alleys."

How often can I schedule a free bulk collection? 
Free curbside bulk collection can be scheduled for each residence once every six weeks. Call Solid Waste Customer Service at 480-782-3510 for the date available for your next free bulk.  If you would like an additional  bulk collection in between the six weeks there is a fee.
