No change for holiday for Mesa trash/recycle barrel collection service

Posted

Trash and recycle barrel collection service in Mesa will be provided as regularly scheduled throughout the entire Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

Residents should have their barrels at the curb by 6 a.m. on their scheduled collection day to ensure service, according to a release.

The black barrel is designated for the disposal of all non-hazardous household trash. Per city and county health regulations, material should be properly bagged and tied before placing it into the barrel. This will help to eliminate odors and the breeding of flies in addition to preventing trash from being scattered around your neighborhood. Please remember that all contents placed in the black barrel will be sent to the landfill, according to the city’s website.

The blue barrel is for the recycling of acceptable materials. Items placed into the blue barrel should not be bagged but they should instead be loose, relatively clean, dry and empty. Lids and labels do not need to be removed, it states.

Mesa, solid waste
