The department also handles the maintenance of city-owned properties, such as City Hall and the Calvin C. Goode Building, as well as the purchase and maintenance of city-owned vehicles.

In 2013, the department launched its waste diversion initiative, Reimagine Phoenix, with a citywide goal of diverting 40 percent of trash from the landfill by the year 2020.

Public Works is committed to creating a sustainable Phoenix through positive resource management. The department's vision, mission statement and goals are included in the department's 2016-2021 Strategic Plan.
