Recycling Program Accepts Additional Items

More Types of Plastic, Cardboard and Paper Can Go Into Cocoa Bins

12/2/2009

PEORIA, Ariz. (Dec. 2, 2009) – The city has expanded its curbside recycling program to include additional types of plastic, as well as food and drink packaging and shredded paper.

Specifically, residents now can toss the following into their recycling bins:

  • Plastic #3 - Bottles of the sort that hold cooking oil or window cleaner.

  • Plastic #4 - Squeezable bottles and six-pack rings.

  • Plastic #5 - Butter tubs and yogurt, sour cream and cottage cheese containers.

  • Plastic #6 - Fountain drink plastic cups, disposable plates, CD cases. (No foam material.)

  • Plastic #7 - Rigid plastic, buckets and utensils.

  • Wet-strength cardboard, such as frozen-food boxes and soda carriers.

  • Shredded paper in clear plastic bags. (Please tie bags.)

Peoria’s curbside recycling program has accepted plastics #1 and #2 since its inception. Plastic #1 is found in: water, juice, sport-drink, mouthwash and catsup bottles. Plastic #2 is found in: milk, water and juice jugs; laundry-detergent containers; and shampoo and dish-soap bottles.

Since the city implemented curbside recycling in 2007, Peoria residents have diverted more than 30,000 tons of material to the North Gateway Material Recovery Facility in northern Phoenix. That amounts to almost a quarter of the solid waste material the city collects!

Selling the recyclable material has brought in more than $700,000 and saved Peoria a similar amount in landfill fees.

What about plastic grocery bags?

Peoria’s curbside recycling program still cannot accept plastic grocery bags because they gum up the machinery at the processing facility. To address this, the city is partnering with the Arizona Federation of Marketing Alliance to promote Bag Central Station, a program in which retailers host drop-off points for plastic grocery bags. Residents who would like to recycle those bags can take them to participating stores such as Albertsons, Bashas’, Fry’s, Lowe’s, Safeway, Sprouts, Target, Walgreens, and Walmart.
