Recycling at Transfer Stations
Appliances, including refrigerators, washer/dryers, water heaters, freezers, air conditioners, stoves, dishwashers, Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) television and Non-CRT televisions can be recycled at the transfer stations. For more information, please visit our Appliance Recycling page.
As a resident of Phoenix, you may take up to five (5) automobile tires per year to a city of Phoenix disposal facility. The rims must be removed from the automobile tires prior to bringing to the transfer station. The transfer station does not accept off-roading, semi or motorcycle tires. Tires are collected in a separate container and are not allowed to be disposed of in city landfills by state law. Maricopa County collects the tires from the city for proper disposal or recycling.
There are specified mattress recycling containers at each of the transfer stations. The city of Phoenix has partnered with Goodwill of Arizona to disassemble the mattresses and recycle and reuse its component parts. Mattresses that are soiled or infested with bed bugs will not be accepted. Please call the transfer station for more information.
If you bring in signs for recycling, please inform the scale house clerk that you have election signs ONLY. If other recyclable materials are included in the load, the customer will be charged the regular refuse rate. (If you have trash you will be charged.)
