Whether hiking the Superstitions to find hidden gold or simply to enjoy the surroundings, visitors find that Apache Junction lives up to its rugged reputation.
In the northeast region of Phoenix, Apache Junction is a town surrounded by wilderness—ideal for travelers seeking the scenic route to discover historic towns or tour a nearby lake aboard a steamboat.
Legend has it that during the 1800s, Jacob Waltz—who went by the nickname “the Dutchman” (though he was actually German)—and his partner, Jacob Weiser, located a gold mine that once belonged to a wealthy Mexican family. Not long after the pair hid their gold riches in the surrounding mountains, Weiser mysteriously died—whether at the hands of Apaches or a greedy Waltz, no one is certain. On his deathbed, Waltz described the location of his hidden gold to his caretaker who, despite her best efforts, was never able to locate “the Lost Dutchman’s Gold Mine.”
In the years since thousands have tried to locate the gold without success, some leaving poorer than before and others dying in their pursuit of the treasure—each attempt further contributing to the legend. (Cited by visitarizona.com)

Does Apache Junction have free bulk trash pickup?
Apache Junction is serviced by private trash companies. You would have to call and arrange a pickup and their stipulations are crazy confusing.
However, if you do not want to wait for this picky pick-up service and you want your things gone now, consider giving Junk-Rite a call at 480-228-3368

Junk-Rite is your answer for all of your bulk trash needs in Apache Junction. You won’t have to lift a thing! Just send up photos of your unwanted items and we will load it all and take it away for you.
If it is still usable, we will donate it to one of the many charities that we work with in your area.
If it can be recycled, we will sort it to the proper place and recycle it for you.
As a last resort, all other waste that cannot be repurposed will have to go to the landfill. Junk-Rite does every possible thing to keep as much waste as possible out of the landfill. We divert almost 60% of our pickups from the landfill and into the hands of a donation or recycling center.
