​What is an Eco-station?

Eco-stations are huge roll-off bins, strategically placed in city-owned parks and near clusters of multi-family housing complexes. Phoenix residents and businesses are encouraged to use the eco-stations to place their recyclables at any time. 

Recyclable items can also be dropped off at Phoenix's two transfer stations:

27th Avenue Transfer Station - 3060 S. 27th Ave. Phoenix, AZ

North Gateway Transfer Station - 30205 N. Black Canyon Hwy. Phoenix, AZ
