The city of Phoenix offers a weekly recycling collection, that occurs on the same day as landfill container collection, but using different trucks to avoid contamination. Collected recyclables are brought to the city-owned
Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) where they are sorted and processed for repurposing. The
Zero Waste team handles all recycling education.
Recycling Guidelines: Remember, all materials must be emptied of liquids and free of food scraps and grease before tossing them in the container. Plastic bags are not accepted in the recycle container. Materials must also be placed in the container loosely, and not bagged.
