Chandler Waste Services Program

Bonnie Marcus, Community Administrator

With everyone returning for the winter, I would like to reiterate the Chandler Waste Services Program.

Every Monday, the City will pick up your blue can or recyclables. These items can be newspapers, magazines, paper sacks, cardboard boxes, aluminum beverage cans, steel tin cans, soup-type cans, plastic bottles, jugs and containers, glass food and beverage jars and bottles. Only bagged, shredded paper in the blue cans; this is the only time plastic bags are allowed. Recyclables should be clean and dry with caps, lids and rings removed. Do not put plastic bags, wrap or sheeting in recyclable cans, as they can cause a breakdown of equipment. No Styrofoam, egg cartons or take-out containers.

Every Thursday, the City will pick up your black can or garbage can. All garbage, grass and yard clippings must be bagged and tied. It is the homeowner’s responsibility to keep their cans clean. Do not place materials outside of a City-provided container.

The Villas recycle pick-up is every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The same rules apply as above. The Villas’ regular trash pickup is every weekday during the winter season.

Bulk pickups are available for appliances, electronics, bikes, patio furniture, grills, other metal items, tree and yard trimmings, broken furniture and other large household items. This service is available every six weeks. Please call 480-782-3510 to schedule a curb-side pickup.

Hazardous waste, household cleaners, pesticides, oil, antifreeze and leftover paint must be taken to the Hazardous Waste Collection Center on McQueen and Queen Creek Roads. You must schedule an appointment at 480-782-3510 to ensure a safe environment for the public and staff handling large quantities.

Please do not dump furniture or hazardous waste in the Villa trash areas. Please use one of the above methods to dispose of your items. If you have any questions, please call the City of Chandler Solid Waste Services at 480-782-3510.

Thank you for your cooperation.
