Homeowners who receive city garbage collection are encouraged to participate in the citywide "Phoenix Recycles" program. Each home can have two storage containers - one black or green container for bagged and tied garbage and the other, a blue container, for recycling.

Not sure what you can recycle? Visit the recycling pages for more information.

Water, sewer and sanitation services will be reflected in your municipal services bill and are among the lowest in the United States.
