MAY BULK WASTE COLLECTION IN AREAS E, F, G AND H 

Tempe has enhanced its Bulk Trash and Green Organics program to provide a more environmentally-friendly service while also reducing costs. The 2015 schedule includes more frequent pickups for mixed bulk trash and an optional program to recycle and compost your green waste. Click here for more information on the program.

Bulk pickup will occur in May for residents living in Areas E, F, G and H. Tempe's seasonal Green Organics collection will begin again in July. IMPORTANT INFO REGARDING YOUR MIXED BULK AND GREEN ORGANICS COLLECTION: Residents should make two separate piles - one for mixed bulk trash and one for green organics. The material is collected by two separate trucks and pickup may occur on separate days.  

Follow the link below for your 2015 pickup schedule.
