BUCKEYE — Bulk trash is a quarterly service to help residents dispose of large household items that do not fit in regular trash bins.
The city of Buckeye recently published a list of dates that all parts of the city will receive large-trash pickup this fall and winter.
This service is not for commercially generated trash, construction or demolition debris. Small items must be bagged.
For 2022, city officials decided bulk trash will be picked up over a full week, as the level of participation makes it impossible to collect in just one day.
Residents should place items out before Monday as crews collect during the week assigned.
Residents can set out their bulk trash the Friday before an assigned date. Late placement may not receive service.
