City of Mesa homeowners that pay for residential solid waste services have the ability to use the Salt River Landfill once per month for a nominal fee. Residents must present an original or a copy of their City of Mesa utility bill for the current or previous month, and a picture identification card with a name and/or address matching the utility bill. For your convenience, if you dispose of less than 2,000 pounds or one (1) ton, a charge of $11.00 is added to your next month's City of Mesa utility bill. In some situations however, it may be more economical to pay cash at the current rate per ton versus using the Mesa landfill program. For example, if your load is less than 600 pounds, it will cost you more to use the homeowner landfill program than to pay cash at the current landfill rate. IMPORTANT NOTE: If your load weighs more than 2,000 pounds or one (1) ton, you will be required to pay the full gate rate ($38.00 per ton) for the entire load. No credit is given for the first 2,000 pounds.
Homeowners are responsible for any surcharges such as uncovered loads or for appliances that contain freon.
IMPORTANT NOTE: EFFECTIVE JUNE 1, 2007, Mesa residents will be allowed to use Waste Management's San Tan Transfer Station located at 4040 South 80th Street, Mesa, AZ 85212.

NO UTILITY BILL - PAYING BY CASH: Presenting your City of Mesa utility bill is NOT needed when completing a standard cash transaction. No limitations on load weight and vehicle size are set.
