Thank you for caring about our environment. Did you know that when you reduce, reuse or recycle trash, you are helping to conserve natural resources, energy and landfill space? When you reduce the amount of trash you create or reuse items more than once, you are saving money for your family, and helping the overall economy by creating new recycling jobs.
In our region, the cities, towns, counties, and Native American Indian Communities offer residents numerous ways to help the environment through waste reduction and recycling programs. Recycling programs vary slightly from community to community, and we encourage you to contact your local jurisdiction for more information on the programs offered in your area. We have provided contact information for your community below. You can also contact the Maricopa Association of Governments at (602) 254-6300 to learn more about regional recycling efforts.
Visit our “Think Before You Shop” holiday recycling video page. The Maricopa Association of Governments, in cooperation with its Solid Waste Advisory Committee and Valleywide Recycling Partnership, has produced a series of videos designed to inform residents on how to reduce trash during the holidays. The fast-paced 30-second videos encourage residents to “Think Before You Shop” and provide ideas on how to reduce, reuse, and recycle.
Below are links to related regional and national organizations involved in recycling and solid waste management, including programs in local cities and towns in the region.

In an effort to make information delivery faster, MAG has implemented an e-mail notification system that will make it easier to receive documents such as agendas, minutes and reports. Through a free subscription service called GovDelivery, MAG member agencies and the public will have better access to information that is posted on the MAG Web site.
The subscription service monitors specific Web pages for changes, and when a change is detected, the service sends an e-mail to subscribers notifying them of the change. Users can choose to subscribe to as many of the pages as they wish. There are about 130 monitored pages on the MAG Web site.
As a subscriber, you can choose not only what information you receive, you can also choose how often you receive it—immediately, daily, or weekly.
To subscribe, simply click on the link on the page that says “Sign up to receive email updates.” Users can also click on a Quick Subscribe link on various pages to see a full list and subscribe to any of the MAG pages. To subscribe, only a few pieces of information will be required, such as e-mail address, delivery preferences and organization.
Look for the red envelope icon on pages of interest.
