Gilbert’s Environmental Services Department is introducing a new fee structure for customers requesting additional waste, recycling or bulk waste collection, container maintenance and appliance pickup.

The new one-time service fee was approved by Gilbert City Council in February and will take effect July 1, 2022.

This new pricing structure is designed to more evenly distribute the costs associated with performing these additional services.
