Glendale Municipal Code Book | Additional Bulk Trash Collection-Residential | Multi-Family
The city provides bulk trash pickup service for large, bulky items that will not fit into your residential garbage container. This is the time to dispose of tree limbs and brush, as well as furniture and appliances generated from your property.
Crews are responsible for removal of large debris only. The equipment used often leaves behind small debris, which is the responsibility of the resident to clean up. Service will not be provided if bulk trash is improperly placed, deemed unsafe to collect or contains unacceptable items.
In order to reduce blight and assist in keeping our neighborhoods safe, residents are asked to place bulk trash out no earlier than 6 a.m. on the Thursday before your scheduled service week and no later than 6 a.m. on the Monday of your scheduled service week.
It is a violation of city ordinance to put bulk trash out before or after the assigned period. Residents not placing bulk trash out on time will not receive service until the following month and are required to remove their items from the street or alley until the next scheduled service. Failure to comply may result in enforcement action, including charges to the resident.
For questions regarding bulk trash placement or to report early/ late put out, please contact the Solid Waste Division at 623-930-2660.
