The city of Phoenix offers a weekly recycling collection, that occurs on the same day as landfill container collection, but using different trucks to avoid contamination. Collected recyclables are brought to the city-owned Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) where they are sorted and processed for repurposing.
Recyclebank, Phoenix’s new partner in waste diversion and sustainability, introduces a new rewards program that educates and encourages Phoenix residents to divert more waste from the landfill through reusing or recycling materials, or simply reducing consumption and waste.
The City of Phoenix holds collection events for household hazardous waste and electronics nine months out of twelve each year. Effective September 1st 2017, Residential customers will be allowed up to two CRT units per month, per household free of charge.
