Landfill Operations

EGSD will no longer be accepting cash payments at the Los Reales Landfill. Credit cards, debit cards, checks, or rechargeable cash cards will be accepted as payment. The City of Tucson’s Los Reales Landfill is adopting a new rate schedule to simplify transactions in order to smoothly process customers accessing the landfill.

The landfill is experiencing unusually high customer traffic which is causing long lines and is impacting traffic safety. A simplified rate schedule is being adopted to reduce the number of vehicles that are required to weigh out. The new rate schedule is as follows:                     

Pickup Truck $15/load
Pickup Truck w/Trailer $25/load
16,000 lb. and over (Requires weigh out) $32/ton





The new rate schedule should simplify transactions and ease the long wait times for all customers. For more information, visit

More information will be coming as it is received and as the situation evolves.
