The City of Phoenix has committed to helping protect the environment. Recycling is as important today as ever before!
More than half of what we throw away can be recycled. Recycling helps conserve landfill space, preserve natural resources and control rising waste disposal costs. Homeowners that receive city garbage collection can participate in the citywide "Phoenix Recycles" program. Each home can have two storage containers - one black or green container for bagged and tied garbage and the other, a blue container, for recycling (to request additional containers, contact Solid Waste Customer Service at 602-262-7251). Blue recycling containers are collected each week. If you are new to your home, please consult the literature delivered with your container for the correct day of collection for your home, or watch when your neighbors place their containers out or call Solid Waste Customer Service at 602-262-7251 to verify your service day.
