Education and Community Outreach
Phoenix Public Works have specialists, who work with the community to educate them about waste diversion and the city's Reimagine Phoenix initiative. Specialists can give group tours of the city's transfer station; give a presentation to various schools, neighborhood and community meetings; offer one-on-one education about the proper waste diversion practices; and set-up informational booths at community events.
A robust education and community outreach effort is one of the focus areas of the Reimagine Phoenix initiative, and our specialists are a great source of waste diversion education and information for residents and businesses.
