In 2013, the Public Works Department launched its waste diversion and sustainability initiative, Reimagine Phoenix, with a citywide goal of diverting 40 percent of trash from the landfill by the year 2020 by considering how we reduce, reuse, recycle, reconsider, and reimagine healthy consumption habits to minimize waste in our daily lives.
The Public Works Department will focus on improving three areas that will help achieve the city's waste diversion goal of 40 percent:
Private and public sector partnerships - partnering with industry and community leaders to find viable solutions to waste diversion issues and concerns.
Community and educational outreach - increasing communication and education about diversion and sustainability efforts to residents and to businesses
Below are the latest issues of the Reimagine Phoenix newsletter that provides news and updates on the Reimagine Phoenix initiative. The newsletters feature Reimagiene Phoenix partners, new solid waste programs available to Phoenix residents, important reminders about solid waste services, tips on how to divert more waste and local businesses who have incorporated sustainabilty practices into their daily operations.
