Recycling Toolkit

Recycling Toolkit

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

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
  • Preserve natural resources for future generations
  • Rallies support of the community
  • Teach children waste reduction habits and to respect the environment
  • 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'."
