City of Goodyear, Arizona
For Immediate Release: Oct. 8, 2009
New Twice-A-Month BULK Trash Program
GOODYEAR, ARIZ. (Oct. 8, 2009) Goodyear's new Twice-A-Month Bulk Trash program begins November 2. Don't worry...There will be no change to your regular weekly pickup day for the tan garbage containers and green recycle containers. Continue to put your trash containers out as you have always done.
Under the new Twice-A-Month Bulk Trash program, the familiar weekly pickup service of bulk trash items that are too large to fit in the containers, like yard trimmings and discarded furniture, will be reduced to twice a month.
Beginning Monday, November 2, City of Goodyear sanitation vehicles will collect bulk trash items in your neighborhood twice each month instead of every week. Your bulk trash will be picked up on the same two days of every month.
To find out which two days of the month your bulk trash will be picked up, check the new Twice-A-Month Bulk Trash Zone Map enclosed with your next utility bill, or view the map online at www.goodyearaz.gov. Your bulk trash pickup days will be different from the pickup schedule for your regular and recycle collection days, so be sure to check the new Twice-A-Month Bulk Trash Zone Map before Nov. 2.
Example: If you live in Zone F, your bulk trash will be picked up on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month.
If you previously scheduled a bulk trash pickup online or by phone for any date after October 30, that pickup will be automatically cancelled. Your bulk trash will be collected twice each month beginning in November on the days indicated on the new Twice-A-Month Bulk Trash Zone Map.
No bulk trash will be collected on holidays. Designated days for bulk trash collection on holiday weeks will not be shifted. If your designated day falls on a holiday, your bulk trash will be collected on the next regular designated pickup day for your Zone.
Example: Zone F will have no bulk trash pickup on the second Thursday of November because Thanksgiving is a holiday. Zone F's next bulk trash pickup will be on Dec. 10.
Reducing bulk trash pickup service to twice a month will save money and help the City stay within budget.
