RECYCLING

 

 

Recycle Today for Wickenburg’s Tomorrow!

 

The Public Works Department oversees the recycling program as a division of its Sanitation service. Curbside recycling collection, which began in 2011, has significantly increased the volume of diversion from the normal waste stream. Annually, Wickenburg residents divert nearly 700 tons of recycling. This diversion is not only environmentally friendly; it reduces expenses and creates revenue to help offset the rising costs of operating the sanitation service.
