No More Recycling – Blue Carts and Green Carts Equal Trash
BULLHEAD CITY, AZ. – – August 25, 2020 – Effective Monday, August 31, 2020 all residential recycling is discontinued throughout the City of Bullhead, including the large bins located at City Hall. Bullhead City trash service is going from two days to one day. Residents trash collection bills will be reduced from $15.54 per month to $14.95, which is one of the lowest in the region. Residents are encouraged to go to www.bullheadcity.com and review the new service maps to familiarize themselves with their new trash service day. Republic Services has also mailed each resident a postcard indicating their new service day to help educate the public on the new changes. Advertising has also been placed in the Mohave Daily News. Flyers were also inserted into the City’s Wastewater bills.
Residents may use their recycling cart as a second trash cart at no additional cost. Republic Services asks that residents place their blue and / or green carts at the curb by 4 am on their service day. If residents would prefer to return their blue cart or they are interested in getting an extra cart for $3 per month, please call Republic Services at (928) 758-0000.
On July 15, the Bullhead City Council approved a limited extension of the agreement with Republic Services through December of 2024. This extension will allow the parties and the community to effectively address the current situation and provide time for evaluation of developing circumstances in regards to potential future recycling. The City Council did not want residents to see a massive rate hike to retain recycling. Instead, the global markets can correct while Bullhead City residents enjoy low trash rates.
Residents are still able to receive six free bulk waste pickups per year for each household. Bulk waste includes items that are typically too large to be disposed of in your regular curbside trash container. To help you get rid of these large items, Republic Services offers easy bulk trash pickup so residents don’t have to haul them to a landfill. Bulk items typically include couches, lamps, rugs, mattresses, large appliances without Freon and home construction debris. Please can call Republic Services at (928) 758-0000 to schedule their bulky item disposal.
