Recycling Toolkit

Recycling Toolkit

The Recycling Toolkit is a guide to building recycling programs in Arizona, created by ADEQ in collaboration with Arizona Recycling Coalition.

Why Recycle?

Organizations with recycling programs can have positive impacts to the environment, public health and local economy, while contributing to a company's bottom line. Great recycling programs:

  • Keep neighborhoods cleaner and healthier
  • Get citizens involved in their communities
  • Better prepare organizations for responsible growth
  • Divert waste from landfills to give it new life as a renewed resource
  • Save money!

"We didn't look at a can or a bottle and call it trash — we now refer to it as 'money'."
