Green Waste (Bagged, Boxed, or Bundled!)
The City of Nogales is pleased to offer a weekly green waste collection service for Nogales residents. In general, all green waste should be cut, tied, bundled, bagged, or boxed for easy collection. Please do not place green waste items on the curb until the night before collection. Each bundle should not weigh more than 60 pounds. The green waste collection does not include couches, mattresses, refrigerators, or other large, bulky items. Residents should dispose of these items on their own. If you have questions, please call Public Works at 520-285-5731.
