your trash collection.
How do I find my trash collection day?
ACUA will collect trash weekly from four separate zones: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. To find your collection zone/day visit use the search tool below. Residents can also sign up for our free reminder system that sends weekly collection reminders by phone call, text message or email.

Recycling will now be collected biweekly on the same day as your trash collection. For example, if you are located in the Monday trash zone, your recycling collection will now be every other Monday. The first recycling collection week using the
new zones is September 7, 2020.
