About the Public Works Department

With more than 600 employees under its Solid Waste arm, Phoenix Public Works provides trash, recycling and other waste diversion services to more than 400,000 households. Our work culture is founded on delivering customer satisfaction, as well as continuously striving for efficiency in our operations. Our commitment to the Phoenix community is to create and promote a more sustainable Phoenix by providing waste diversion education, convenient and reliable diversion programs and to collaborate with organizations and businesses to develop a robust economy based on sustainability. 

Through the Reimagine Phoenix initiative, our goal is to divert 40% of our trash from the landfill by the end of 2020. We are determined to work with the community to achieve this goal, not just for the protection of our health and environment today, but to guarantee good health and a clean environment for future Phoenicians. ​
