Neighborhood Cleanup


At the beginning of each year, the City of Yuma starts its annual Neighborhood Clean-up for City residents. This is in addition to normal collection days and is strictly for the pickup of ordinary household bulk items such as refrigerators, stoves, washing machines, furniture, electronics, tires (without rims) and bagged lawn clippings.

This program is only open to City Residents.

Schedule

During the months of January through April, the City is divided into ten areas and each area has one week for the curbside pick-up of these ordinary household bulk items. In addition to the complete Neighborhood Clean-Up map, there are also maps for each of the specific areas below:
