Learn more about Free Dump Week

Residents of Apache Junction can junk a load of trash during “Free Dump Week.” 

During that week, the landfill offers Apache Junction residents a drop off opportunity at no cost in partnership with Republic Services, which owns and operates the landfill. City residents can take one load, up to 500 pounds, to the landfill for free during the scheduled week. Please bring proof of residency (such as a water bill). Residents are advised that only one pickup truck bed size of refuse per household will be accepted.

Remember, under safety guidelines, Republic Services requires hard hats and vests while at the landfill. Residents can wear their own, borrow a set during the visit or purchase a set for $9.
