Residential Recycling Program
Phoenix adopted a citywide recycling program, "Phoenix Recycles," in 1991 and currently offers residents curbside and single-stream recycling service. The city offers a weekly recycling collection, that occurs on the same day as trash collection, but using different trucks to avoid contamination. Collected recyclables are brought to the city-owned Materials Recovery Facilities (MRF) where they are sorted and processed for repurposing.
What can I place in my blue recycling bin?
The video is a simple reminder of the top 10 materials that should be placed in your blue recycling bin. Materials must be emptied of liquids and free of food scraps and grease before tossing them in the bin. Materials must also placed in the bin loosely, and not bagged.
