Bulk Trash Information
Call 623-222-1900 to schedule a bulk trash appointment.
The City of Surprise offers bulk trash service to residents that are serviced by the City’s Sanitation Department. Acceptable bulk trash items are; household items, yard debris, or appliances. The bulk crew cannot pick up dirt, rocks, concrete, concrete blocks, bricks, roofing materials, batteries or hazardous materials.
There is a limit of 10 cubic yards per household and a limit of 20 cubic yards per year, at no charge to the resident. Residents do not need to be home when bulk items are picked up. Bulk items need to be set out before 6:00 a.m. and placed on the front edge of the resident’s property line, before the sidewalk. Bulk items cannot be placed on top of the sidewalk or into the street. For reference, one cubic yard is about the size of one washer or one dryer.
