Trash collection

Sun City West is covered by Parker & Sons refuse collection service. Residential barrel collection days are Tuesday & Friday. To be sure of service, please have your trash out the night before your service day, or by 5:00 a.m. the day of service as trucks will start collecting by 6:00 a.m.

Barrel Placement: The front of the barrel(s) must be facing the street. Please do not place barrels near vehicles, fences, mailboxes, etc. that might be damaged by the automated arms (provide at least four feet of clearance in all directions from any obstacle). Placing barrels near obstacles may prevent your trash from being collected.

Holiday periods

Service days that fall on or after a recognized holiday will be delayed one day that week. Service days that fall before a recognized holiday are not affected and will remain on schedule.

Recycling guidelines

Recyclables can be placed in the bin(s) of your choice (e.g. cardboard boxes, baskets, paper bags, etc). Do not place recyclables in plastic bags as they contaminate the recycling load. If you use a reusable container, cardboard box, or basket to store your recyclables, we will not take your container but will leave it for your next recycle day.

Preparation: Recyclables need to be relatively clean, dry, and empty. Lightly rinse the recycling container, if necessary, to remove food particles. Please be conscientious of your water use while rinsing the containers. Remove non-recyclable material from the recyclable item (such as plastic cereal inserts). Plastic and metal caps and labels do not need to be removed from the recyclable items.

Separation: You do not need to sort or separate your recyclables from one another. This is a single-stream recycling program, meaning that all recyclable items are placed into the bin together (e.g. glass can be mixed with plastic, paper mixed with aluminum cans, etc.).

Placement: Recyclable items should be placed at the end of your driveway on the side opposite of the underground can. Containers put out by your underground may appear to be trash, and may not get picked up on your recycling day. All items must be taken to the curb (or service alley for condo customers) by 5:00 a.m. the day of collection. Recycling collection is unaffected by the rain! If you prefer to deliver your recyclables to your favorite charity, please continue to do so.
