Phoenix City Council Approves Staff Recommendation on Solid Waste Rate Increase Based on Community Feedbackhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/public-works/931Public Works (Trash and Recycling)2/11/2020 11:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/931/Newsroom_PublicWorks_200B.jpgPhoenix City Council Approves Staff Recommendation on Solid Waste Rate Increase Based on Community Feedback<div class="ExternalClass9DAB4B94106240D5A4A7D04C0CD9ACB7"><html> <p> The Phoenix City Council approved an increase to the current monthly residential solid waste rate of $26.80.   </p> <p>The increase will be phased in over two years, which means, residential customers will notice an additional $3.75 in their April 2020 bill and then another increase of $3.25 in January 2021, bringing the monthly rate to $33.80. </p> <p>The decision to approve the increase in the solid waste monthly rate was based on feedback gathered by Phoenix Public Works staff, who implemented a community outreach strategy during the months of December 2019 and January 2020. </p> <p>Public Works staff hosted 13 community meetings in every Council district, as well as attended numerous neighborhood association and Block Watch meetings to give presentations. Staff also engaged with solid waste customers and residents at the transfer stations and at various community events. The goal was to promote a dedicated public education webpage filled with information, videos and FAQs about solid waste services and rates, and encourage the Phoenix community to take the online survey to gather feedback. </p> <p>The results of the survey, which was available online and as hard copies in Spanish and English, revealed that nearly 60% of the respondents were in favor of maintaining the current level of service they receive for an additional $6.40 per month; and more than 60% preferred the rate increase to be phased in over two years. Ninety percent were satisfied with the city's delivery of its solid waste services, indicative of the department's focus on providing excellent customer service.</p> <p>The survey results indicated the top three solid waste services valued most by customers are: 1) weekly trash service; 2) weekly recycling service; and 3) quarterly bulk trash service, and 90% value recycling and other waste diversion. </p> <p>During the two months of community outreach, Public Works staff received more than 5,800 surveys and garnered 11,000 unique views on its dedicated informational webpage, phoenix.gov/trashandrecycle. </p> <p>During the City Council meeting, staff also recommended to increase the Refuse Tipping Fee. The current tipping fee of $38.25 is what third party customers pay to dispose waste at the city's transfer station and eventually, the landfill. Like the residential solid waste rate, that rate has remained unchanged for 11 years.</p> <p>The first increase on the Refuse Tipping Fee will be an additional $3.75 effective FY2019-20; the second increase will be an additional $2 effective FY2021-22; the third increase will be an additional $1 effective FY2023-24. </p> <p>Phoenix has a goal to achieve a 40% waste diversion rate by the end of 2020 through its Reimagine Phoenix initiative.  Phoenix presently has a 36% waste diversion rate and will continue its educational outreach, recycling and other waste diversion programs to achieve its goal. ​</p> <span id="ms-rterangepaste-end"></span> </html></div>https://phoenix.gov/publicworksNewspublic-worksSolid waste truckPublic Works#ReinaginePHX #recycling #trash #solidwastePhoenix, sustainability, RecyclingYvette Roeder602-501-0620602-262-5099 yvette.roeder@phoenix.govhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/MediaContact/Attachments/24/Yvette_Roeder.jpgTalkingTrashPHX

Phoenix Sky Harbor Offers Eight Travel Tips to Help You Travel this Memorial Day Weekendhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/aviation/2355Aviation5/25/2022 3:45:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/2355/newsroom_aviation_084.jpgPhoenix Sky Harbor Offers Eight Travel Tips to Help You Travel this Memorial Day Weekend<div class="ExternalClass1DA97C1E9E9441B0900B78EAE1EA804D"><html> <span style="font-size:17.3333px;"> <em>​Read through our helpful travel tips to avoid any last-minute hiccups</em> </span> <br style="font-size:17.3333px;"> <br>PHOENIX – This summer, the travel season rebounds as industry experts predict more Americans will travel this summer than at any time since the start of the pandemic. <br><br>Passenger counts continue to increase across the nation as people begin leisurely traveling again. And with the Memorial Day weekend approaching, Phoenix Sky Harbor is expecting to see an increase in passengers, nearly back to pre-pandemic levels.<br> <br><span id="ms-rterangepaste-start"></span><img style="margin:5px;width:200px;height:133px;vertical-align:baseline;" class="" src="/aviationsite/MediaAssets/Passenger%20View_Media.jpg" /><span id="ms-rterangepaste-end"></span>Travelers can expect continued <a href="https://www.skyharbor.com/BeforeTraveling/health-information" target="_blank">safety protocols</a>. Though masks are no longer mandated for travel, the CDC recommends mask-wearing while traveling. Phoenix Sky Harbor will have face coverings and other PPE items are available for purchase at airport shops and PPE vending machines. Hand-sanitizing stations are still available and other contactless processes will still be followed.<br> <br>Here are a few tips from <strong><em>America's Friendliest Airport</em>® </strong>to help ease the stress of passengers returning to the sky. <br><br><ul><li><strong>Tip #1 – Pack a face covering and other personal protective equipment (PPE) such as hand sanitizer. </strong>The Federal Mask Mandate has been lifted; however, the CDC continues to recommend that people wear masks while flying to ensure the safety and well-being of the traveling public, and to minimize the spread of COVID-19. Some airlines may still require travelers to wear a mask. Check with your airline for specific requirements.<br></li><li><strong>Tip #2 – Traveling internationally? Check your destination's entry requirements. </strong>Some destinations may require a negative COVID-19 test for entry. COVID-19 testing is offered pre-security in Terminal 4 at Treat. The U.S. still also requires a negative test when returning on an international flight. Be sure to check with your airline and destination for specific information.<br></li><li><strong>Tip #3– Reserve your parking in advance. </strong>Enjoy the convenience of <a href="https://www.skyharbor.com/ParkingTransportation/parking" target="_blank">Sky Harbor Discount Parking</a> and save money while reserving your spot at any of our parking facilities.<br></li><li><strong>Tip #4 – Double-check what's in your bags. </strong>Make sure to look through your bags and review the <a href="http://www.tsa.gov/travel/security-screening/whatcanibring" target="_blank">TSA Prohibited Items List</a> the night before your flight.<br></li><li><strong>Tip #5 – Check the flight status with the airline before coming to the airport to catch a flight or to pick-up/drop-off loved ones. </strong>Flight status can be checked on the airline's website or at skyharbor.com.<br></li><li><strong>Tip #6 – Give yourself extra time. Arrive early and check security wait times online. </strong>If you are traveling domestically, arrive two hours before your flight, three hours if you are traveling internationally. Travelers can also check current TSA security checkpoint wait times on the homepage of <a href="https://www.skyharbor.com/" target="_blank">skyharbor.com</a> and on the flight information screens in the Airport once they arrive. Traveling in Terminal 4? You can use any security checkpoint to access your gate.<br></li><li><strong>Tip #7 – Reduce your time in the security checkpoint line. </strong>Our PHX RESERVE program allows you to save your space and reduce the wait. Make a reservation up to three days before your flight departs. You'll be provided with a time to enter a designated checkpoint lane where you'll begin the standard security process. This program is open to travelers of any airline, though if you have TSA PreCheck, it's recommended you use the TSA PreCheck Program. <a href="https://www.skyharbor.com/beforetraveling/security" target="_blank">Learn more</a>.<br></li><li><strong>Tip #8 – Reserve your rental car in advance. </strong>No matter where you are traveling, it's always a good idea to reserve your rental car in advance as vehicles may be limited for walk-up customers.</li></ul><br><strong>Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, <em>America's Friendliest Airport</em>®</strong>, has an annual economic impact of more than $38 billion. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, approximately 1,200 aircraft and more than 125,000 passengers arrived at and departed from Sky Harbor every day. PHX Sky Harbor is funded with airport revenue. No tax dollars are used to support the airport.<br></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/aviationNews
