 Participation in the program is free to those presenting proof of residency via a City of Show Low utility bill DISPLAYING CURRENT REFUSE SERVICE or a valid driver’s license listing a physical address within the city limits.  Please note that commercial businesses are excluded from the program.

 Bulky Item Pick Up 

Monday, June 6, through Friday, June 10 (picked up on your regular scheduled trash collection day).  There is no charge on your regular scheduled trash collection day, Monday, June 6, through Friday, June 10, from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  

  • City employees collect bulky items such as:
  • Large appliances (empty refrigerators or freezers of all contents before placing at curbside and the door should be removed should be secured for safety purposes)
  • Furniture
  • Tires
  • Residents are NOT required to schedule a pickup
  • Place your items in front of your residence next to the roadway by 7:00 a.m.  City staff follows the Waste Management route schedule.  
  • Prohibited items include: Liquid paints, oils, pesticides, herbicides, household cleaning products 

We received many calls from concerned citizens about the fact that their Bulk items were NOT picked up on their regular trash day.  Due to the extensive participation in this event, the City crews were unable to get to each neighborhood on their regular trash pick-up day.  Three City crews go out in neighborhoods, one for green waste pick up, one for excess trash, and one for appliances, tires, etc.  After trucks are full, the driver would dispose of those loads before returning to the neighborhoods to continue pickup. All bulk items meeting the requirements will be picked up.  Crews will continue pick-up routes into the next week, if necessary. You may call Show Low Public Works with any questions or concerns at 928-532-4100.
