City begins 2016 Neighborhood Cleanup

Beginning Monday, Jan. 25, City of Yuma residents will start setting their unwanted items at the curb and have them removed for no additional charge during the annual 10-week City of Yuma Neighborhood Cleanup, which will run through March 31.

Neighborhood Cleanup is in addition to normal collection days and is strictly for the pickup of ordinary household bulk items. City of Yuma Public Works crews will make weekly rounds through City of Yuma neighborhoods and collect bulky items that are no longer wanted, such as broken furniture, appliances, tree trimmings and bagged lawn clippings. However, material that qualifies as household hazardous waste will not be picked up (such as old chemicals, paints, pesticides, fertilizers, etc.).

The program runs during the months of January through March. The City is divided into 10 areas; each area has one week for the curbside pickup of these ordinary household bulk items.

For residents' convenience, descriptions and maps of these 10 areas are available on the City's website.

Residents may also call (928) 373-4500 for questions about Neighborhood Cleanup.

The City of Yuma Neighborhood Cleanup program is for residents inside the Yuma city limits only.

 

Examples of items that will be accepted:

Old furniture, mattresses, carpets, and appliances; lawn clippings that are bagged; tree limbs that are no longer than 4 feet in length, tied and bundled and weigh no more than 50 pounds; five (5) tires without rims per residential location (please, no commercial or farm tires). 

Examples of items that will NOT be accepted:

Roofing and construction material; tree stumps; concrete or dirt; household hazardous waste such as motor oil, pesticides, and other chemicals; tires with rims; abandoned or commercial vehicles or farm equipment; materials from commercial enterprises.

 

Please follow these rules:

  • Place all items at the curb for collection at the beginning of your neighborhood's designated week.
  • Please do not block or place items near trash containers and water meters.
  • Loose items must be bagged, boxed or tied, and must be easily handled by two people (not to exceed 50 lbs.).
  • Place appliances, tires, bound limbs, and miscellaneous items into separate piles for easier handling.
  • Please do not place items in alleys; the only exception is for homes facing Avenue A.
  • Be sure to keep any items that you don't want picked up well away from the rights of way surrounding your home.
