The City of Tucson's Environmental and General Services Department (EGSD) started Brush & Bulky + at the end of 2018.
New services added to the Brush & Bulky + program include:
- maintenance of the public right-of way
- removal of vegetation and trash from alleys and easements
- removal of illegally dumped materials
- graffiti removal
- street sweeping and pothole maintenance at the same time crews are collecting materials left for pick-up at curbs or alleys
In less than a year this program has made a difference in neighborhoods.
Here are some before and after photos:
With Brush & Bulky +, crews visit each of Tucson's 26 residential trash service areas twice each year to provide Brush and Bulky Collection. This is your opportunity to clean your yard, garage, or storage shed and get rid of any debris. Materials are collected throughout your collection week so please have everything set out by 6 a.m. on Monday.
EGSD added extra services to make our City and neighborhoods cleaner, more attractive, and safer. Through this program, EGSD also removes overgrowth and litter in rights-of-way, cleans up illegal dumping, removes graffiti, replaces or repairs street signs, repairs potholes, and sweeps streets.
EGSD contacts neighborhood associations within the pick-up areas approximately one month ahead of the collection to identify neighborhood clean-up priorities.
Find your Brush & Bulky + collection week here.
Schedule a neighborhood cleanup around the same time.
