Recycling and Trash

Solid Waste Services is part of the Public Works & Utilities Department and is accountable for providing safe, cost-effective and efficient solid waste programs and services to the citizens of Chandler. 

These programs and services include residential curbside collection of refuse (black cans) and recyclables (blue can), plus scheduled bulk collection and household hazardous waste disposal. The Division operates the Recycling-Solid Waste Collection Center and has an extensive public outreach program to heighten awareness of its programs and the importance of recycling.

Trash and Recycling Collection Schedules

Solid Waste Services is experiencing a slight increase in inquiries about a missed collection of trash and recycling containers.


Please note the following...

  • Trash and recycling is collected between 6 a.m. and 5 p.m.
  • Though it may seem the truck arrives about the same time every week, there is no specific scheduled time for trash or recycling containers to be emptied.
  • Time of collection varies due to truckload capacity, traffic, weather, route changes, road construction and street or utility maintenance.
  • To ensure collection service is not interrupted, have your can at the curb by 6 a.m. on your day of collection or after 6 p.m. the evening before your collection day.
  • Missed collection is verified by container inspections on a street, and reviewing GPS tracking the route and the stops made by a collection truck on a street.
