FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Q: Am I required to have curbside trash services at my residence?
Arizona State Statute 49-765 allows for local regulation of solid waste collection. Specifically, it states:
“Each county, city or town may establish regulations for private collection of solid waste within its area of jurisdiction, including standards for equipment, hours of operation, license fees and insurance requirements as necessary and appropriate to operate a solid waste collection program... If authorized by statute, each county, city or town may provide for criminal and civil penalties for violation of such ordinances or regulations provided that such penalties do not exceed the penalties authorized by this chapter.”
There is also a requirement per the Arizona Administrative Code Title 18, Chapter 13, Article 3, R18-13-305, “where refuse collection service is available, the following refuse shall be required to be collected; Garbage, ashes, rubbish, and small dead animals which do not exceed 75 pounds in weight.”
Q: Is recycling required?
Tougher restrictions on recyclables have made them more difficult to sell to foreign and domestic markets. China and other Asian countries are no longer accepting recyclables which in turn causes the rates to process them to increase. Many cities in the valley are considering rate increases to recycling services and some cities have ceased recycling altogether as it has become cost prohibitive to continue.

A: The revenue is used to cover costs associated with the two annual household hazardous waste events the city hosts each year and for contract oversight by city staff.
Q: Will the Republic Landfill still offer free quarterly dump weeks after these services go into effect?
A: Yes, the city will continue to have free quarterly dump weeks.
