Trash and recycling collection days changing
Effective Monday, March 6, Chandler will implement a new trash and recycling collection day schedule that will affect approximately 28,000 households receiving City trash and recycling collection services.
Residents affected by the change will receive a letter and a postcard at their service address in late February 2017.
“The notices will inform affected customers their service days are changing and include a color-coded map showing the collection days for five geographic areas within the City,” said Tabitha Sauer, customer service supervisor. “Our commitment is to make certain this change is as seamless as possible.”
Sauer said continued growth of residential developments throughout the City requires the Solid Waste Services Division to implement the new collection schedule “to increase efficiencies and provide the best possible service to Chandler residents.”
To ensure trash and recycling containers are emptied, containers must be at the curb no later than 6 a.m. on the collection day. Containers are serviced between the hours of 6 a.m. and 5 p.m. Collection times can vary due to collection truck load capacity, traffic, road construction and weather conditions.
Residents wanting to confirm their collection day can visit chandleraz.gov/recycle or call Solid Waste Services at 480-782-3510.
