For Immediate Release

Surprise trash collection schedule will change Jan. 3

Surprise, AZ (November 8, 2021) Surprise trash collection zones will change beginning Monday, January 3, 2022, to balance the number of homes serviced on each collection day as the city continues to grow.

Not all residents will see changes to their trash collection schedule. These changes apply to city of Surprise sanitation customers only; and some neighborhoods will retain their current collection day.

Solid waste rates will not increase due to changes to the collection days. By adjusting the collection schedule, the city will avoid accruing costs associated with purchasing additional sanitation trucks and hiring more operators to service new customers.

Effective January 3, 2022, the new collection schedule will be:

Red Zone: Monday pickup
Heritage Farms, Sarah Ann Ranch, Sierra Montana, Sterling Grove, Surprise Farms, Sycamore Estates, Zanjero Trails

Blue Zone: Tuesday Pickup
Ashton Ranch, Copper Canyon, Cotton Gin/Sanalina, Countryside, Greer Ranch, Kenly Farms, Marley Park, Rancho Gabriela, Royal Ranch, Sierra Verde, Veramonte, W Ranch 

Orange Zone: Wednesday Pickup
