Solid Waste Collection for Multifamily Residential

In accordance with A.R.S. 49-746, any "Multifamily residential properties” […] defined as “any real property that has one or more structures and that contains five or more dwelling units for rent or lease”, may seek solid waste collection services through the provider of their choice.   The effective date of this statute is July 1, 2016, but the City of South Tucson is implementing the change immediately. The City will allow any property owner with five or more dwelling units to seek services from a provider of their choice prior to the effective date of the statute. The change/amendment to the South Tucson City Code will take place in the coming months.
