Recycling Programs

The Solid Waste Management Department offers commercial recycling programs for commodities such as plastic, paper, cardboard, metal and glass.  These services are exclusively available for current City of Mesa solid waste customers and we'll be happy to discuss with you what option would best meet your business and multi-unit needs.  Depending on your current trash service,  you may even be able to reduce your monthly service fee.

  • Metal bins for cardboard only recycling: If your business generates a large amount of cardboard material, this option may be ideal for you.  Monthly fees do apply for this service and are based on selected container size and frequency of collection.

  • Blue barrel service: 90-gallon blue recycle barrels are available at no additional charge. Barrels are serviced once-per-week and your collection day is based on the location of your property.  Similar to our residential recycling program, accepted materials include plastic, paper, cardboard, metal and glass.  Detailed list>>>


Bulk Item Disposal

  • Appliance Recycling: Curbside collection of appliances such as refrigerators, microwaves, dryers, etc. is available and must be scheduled in advance by calling (480) 644-6789.  Authorized account holders may also submit an online request.  There is a charge of $16.49 per appliance and an additional $10 charge for every appliance that contains Freon.

  • Bulk Item Collection: Large items, such as furniture, can cause a potential safety hazard if placed in a trash bin.  These items can overload your container and cause it to become unserviceable.  Bulk item collection charges depend on the amount of material needing to be picked up and start at $19.99 per load (load size is approximately 4'x4'x8').  To schedule this service, please call (480) 644-6789.  Authorized account holders may also submit an online request.
