Arizona Municipal Recycling Data

The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality conducted a survey of municipal recycling for calendar year 2013 to be able to utilize the data to determine recycling market development needs, industry trends to make appropriate determinations on the use of the Recycling Fund and the efficacy of recycling efforts. Many municipalities and environmental organizations have voluntarily provided their recycling data in response to this survey. Municipalities that chose to report have been grouped by County.
