Brush and Bulky

The City's Brush & Bulky Plus program works to make our city and neighborhoods cleaner, more attractive and safer. Twice a year, crews visit each of Tucson's 26 residential trash service areas to provide Brush & Bulky+ collection. This is your opportunity to clean out your yard, garage or storage shed and get rid of that unwanted debris.

To prepare for the Brush & Bulky collection, simply place your items where your neighborhood's trash is collected. Items must be at least 3-feet from all obstacles, including trash and recycling containers and utility meters. Have materials set out by 6 a.m. on the Monday of your collection week. Collection will be completed by the end of the week. Do not put materials out more than two weeks ahead of your scheduled collection.

The Brush & Bulky maximum is 10 cubic yards per household (1 cubic yard = size of a washing machine). Excess over the limit will not be taken.
