Green and Wood Waste

Program Information

The City of Flagstaff Wood Waste Program is available to all City residents who have 90 gallon residential trash and recycle service. The program will begin in spring and continues through the summer months. The chipper truck crew will follow the same schedule as the bulk trash collection.

Mulching tree limbs and brush saves valuable landfill space. Mulch provides good ground cover, which reduces soil erosion, deters weed growth, and conserves water in landscaping.

For more information call Environmental Services at (928) 213-2110.

Curbside Pick-up Guidelines 

  • All limbs need to be curbside by Monday (6:00 am) of your scheduled week
  • Limbs should be placed in a neat pile parallel with the street
  • Limbs can be up to 10" in diameter and 8' long
  • Do not mix in heavy dirt stumps or finished lumber products with limbs and brush
  • Please stack items separate from other bulk items

Obtaining Mulch

The mulch is available free-of-charge, to residential residents (no commercial contractors). You may want to call in advance to check on availability. Please remember you will need to bring your own containers and hand tools for loading. Quantity is limited to one truck or trailer, per month per customer. Mulch is available at this location:

Larger Items
