How to Handle Illegal Dumping

When moving time comes, typically around the end of the month and the end of University of Arizona semesters, people occasionally dump their trash where it doesn't belong. Property owners are responsible for trash cleanup of items dumped on their property and abutting areas.

One option is to use the free Brush and Bulky collection, provided twice a year by the City of Tucson's Environmental Services department. For a small fee, a special trash collection can be ordered any time by calling Customer Service at (520) 791-3171. Of course, usable items can be donated to charity.
