     ​Reimagine Phoenix is the city's initiative to increase the city's waste diversion rate to 40 percent by 2020, and to better manage its solid waste resources. As of late 2015, Phoenix's waste diversion rate is at 20 percent, but expansion of its community and educational outreach on the five pillars--reduce, reuse, recycle, reconsider and reimagine--hopes to increase awareness of the importance of waste diversion and management. Additionally, the Public Works Department offers solid waste programs to make waste diversion more convenient for residents, as well as partners with the public and private sectors to find solutions to current sustainability issues. 

​How can you help increase our waste diversion rate?
