SAFFORD – Have some unsightly trash around your home you’d like to haul to the dump? How about getting rid of it at no charge?

For the betterment of the county, Safford, Thatcher, Pima, and Graham County are teaming up to sponsor the Safford City Landfill at 2755 N. Safford Landfill Rd. to host its bi-annual Community Pride Days from Thursday, Feb. 23 – Saturday, Feb. 25, from 7:30 a.m. – 4 p.m.

During those days, no matter if you live in Safford, Thatcher, Pima, or the county, anyone can bring one free load of trash to the dump. Make sure your load is tarped to avoid a $10 fee, and be sure to bring documentation of residency or you will be charged. It goes without saying, but no hazardous materials will be accepted and identification is required.

The landfill will not be waiving fees for commercial haulers or commercial businesses — i.e.; landscape businesses, tree trimming businesses, RV Parks, etc.

Safford residents are always permitted one free truckload to the landfill per month. Those utilizing that perk must bring their city of Safford utility bill that matches a driver’s license address.

So, let’s get together to clean up our neighborhoods and take advantage of some free dump days at the Safford Regional Landfill.

Landfill hours are from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., and the Community Pride Days run from Thursday, Feb. 23, through Saturday, Feb. 25. The landfill is closed on Sundays.
