Zero Waste Team (Phoenix)

In order to reach Phoenix’s zero waste goal by 2050, the Zero Waste team provides 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 hosting informational booths at community events.

Now, they are delivering recycling education directly to your homes through their new page Recycle+ created to keep the interest and education on waste diversion ongoing – in your homes, in schools, in the car or wherever there is wifi. The team hopes that Recycle+ motivates you to take the extra step to recycle right and recycle more, so that 40% of Phoenix’s waste material is reused and reimagined as new products.
