Illegal Dumping

Illegal dumping is the disposal of junk, litter, debris or refuse in any unauthorized place such as public or private property, streets, alleys, easements or washes.

The City of Tucson Environmental Services Department (ES) will take illegal dumping complaint calls and will assess the issue. ES Customer Service can be reached by calling 520-791-3171.

If ES can identify the owner of the property on which the illegal dumping is located and can obtain contact information,  ES will notify the owner and offer to arrange for ES Brush and Bulky to remove the debris for a cost of $55.

If ES is unable to determine the property owner, the complaint will be sent to Code Enforcement for further research and an inspection visit. If the illegal dumping is on City property, including medians, ES will contact the appropriate department to have it removed.

Short Survey Request - Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety


I am a graduate student in the College of Public Health at the University of Arizona. I am collecting data for my masters research project with the City of Tucson Bicycle and Pedestrian Program through a short online survey. The findings will be used to inform the City of Tucson about opinions on bicycle and pedestrian safety and motor vehicle speed limit. This anonymous survey takes only 5 minutes to complete, and it will be available online through March 18, 2016.

I am reaching out to see if you would please help me with this project.
