EGSD Response to Covid-19
Trash & Recycling Collection
There have been no changes to trash, recycling, and Brush and Bulky Collection. If you have any issues call Customer Service at 791-3171 or email EShelp@tucsonaz.gov.
Household Hazardous Waste
Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection will not be available until further notice to help stop the spread of COVID-19 coronavirus. This includes:
The monthly HHW collection event, originally scheduled for April 4, at the Eastside Service Center at 7575 E. Speedway Blvd.
- The main site at 2440 W. Sweetwater Drive
- The Los Reales Landfill site at 5300 E. Los Reales
Environmental and General Services (EGSD) asks that you refrain from putting items on the accepted HHW list into your trash. These are potentially harmful to people, pets, and the environment.
EGSD will no longer be accepting cash payments at the Los Reales Landfill. Credit cards, debit cards, checks, or rechargeable cash cards will be accepted as payment. The City of Tucson’s Los Reales Landfill is adopting a new rate schedule to simplify transactions in order to smoothly process customers accessing the landfill.
The landfill is experiencing unusually high customer traffic which is causing long lines and is impacting traffic safety. A simplified rate schedule is being adopted to reduce the number of vehicles that are required to weigh out. The new rate schedule is as follows:
|Pickup Truck w/Trailer||$25/load|
|16,000 lb. and over (Requires weigh out)||$32/ton|
The new rate schedule should simplify transactions and ease the long wait times for all customers. For more information, visit www.tucsonaz.gov/landfill
More information will be coming as it is received and as the situation evolves.
