Bring items to Peoria Recycles Day, Oct. 29

Posted

The city of Peoria is hosting Peoria Recycles Day on Saturday, Oct. 29, 8 a.m.-noon at the Peoria Sports Complex, 16101 N. 83rd Ave.

Peoria residents may drop off electronics and appliances for recycling.

There will also be stations for shredding old documents.

For additional information, email Recycling@peoriaaz.gov or call 623-773-7836.

As a reminder to residents, contamination from a single recycle container (dark brown container) can spoil a whole truckload of material, causing it to be rejected at the Materials Recovery Facility. It can undermine the environmental and cost-conscious efforts of recycling.

Recycling contamination occurs when:

  • Non-recyclable materials are placed in the dark brown recycle container;
  • Plastic bags are placed in the dark brown recycle container;
  • Yard clippings/green waste are placed in the dark brown recycle container;
  • Trash and food waste are placed in the dark brown recycle container.
