Right Size Your Can Program

The City of Tucson's "Right Size Your Can" program is what is known as a volume-based service plan for residential refuse collection. With volume-based service, the less trash you make, the less you pay. It’s new to Tucson, but is being used successfully in many other cities across the U.S.

Beginning July 1 (pending Mayor and Council approval), your monthly Environmental Services charges will depend on what size trash container you have.

Small – 48 gallon - $15.00/month
Medium – 65 gallon - $16.00/month
Large – 95 gallon - $16.75/month

Note: These are proposed rates only. Rates will be set by the Mayor and City Council
Currently customers pay $14.50 per month for weekly pickup of their existing 95-gallon container or the shared alley container.
