Education and Community Outreach
In order to reach the Zero Waste goal by 2050, the Zero Waste Team uses education and community outreach to teach the community about waste diversion. These methods include group tours of the city's North Gateway Transfer Station and Materials Recovery Facility (MRF), educational presentations to schools, neighborhood and community meetings, and informational booths at community events.
A robust education and community outreach effort is one of the focus areas of the Reimagine Phoenix initiative, and our specialists are a great source of waste diversion education and information for residents and businesses. Please visit the Residential Recycling page for more information about the city's waste diversion programs.
