As a City of Buckeye resident, you will receive residential curbside service two times per week; one time per week for trash and one time per week for recycling.  Your scheduled service days are determined by your service area.  To determine your service area please refer to the Area Map in the informative brochure.

Mayor Meck has declared April 22, 2017 as do more blue day.  Recycling helps reduce our use of natural resources and extend the life of our landfill.  Help us continue our sustainability path by learning how you can “do more blue.”

Recycling cart service requirements:

If you live within incorporated city limits, you MUST have a solid waste account with the City

Your cart must be placed in the street in front of your house (or designated collection pad in Verrado), with the wheels adjacent to the curb, and the lid opening toward the street. Where there is no sidewalk, place the cart within two feet (2’) of the pavement or road.
Do not place your cart within ten feet (10’) of any fixed object or in any manner that would interfere with pedestrians, bicyclists, equestrians, or motorists.
You are leasing one container with one service per collection week; additional containers are available for an additional fee (in-ground service customers own and maintain their own cans).


  • Set cart out for collection after 6:00pm on the day preceding collection, but before 5:30 a.m. on the day of scheduled collection; cart must be removed by 11:00pm on collection day
  • Recycle: metal (less than 50lbs), paper, cardboard, plastic, glass and cans
  • Cart must be entirely closed

  • Rinse all cans to remove food. Material must be dry and clean to recycle
  • Break down and section large cardboard boxes before placing in container
  • Place small and loose paper in brown paper bags to prevent spills
  • Keep container clean- it is your responsibility to clean the container
  • Cart must be stored, between collection days, on the user’s property so as not to interfere with pedestrian or vehicular traffic, and following HOA rules.
