New partnership keeps more materials out of City Landfill

Glendale, Ariz. – The city of Glendale is excited to announce an expanded array of recycling options for all residents. Thanks to a new partnership with Waste Management, clean glass items are now allowed to be included in the city’s curbside recycling program. Residents may recycle more plastic items than before including laundry detergent containers, milk jugs as well as plastic water and soda bottles.

Prior to this new agreement, glass and some plastic items were required to go in the trash and not the recycling container. The expanded materials will make it easier for residents to determine which materials are recyclable since all typically recycled materials are included. Residents are strongly encouraged to make sure that all recycled materials are both clean and dry when placed in the containers.

“Our partnership with Waste Management allows us to add to our already robust recycling program,” said Glendale Superintendent of Solid Waste Management Amy Moreno. “The more items that can be recycled, the more natural resources we save, which in turn will extend the life of our landfill.”

Items still not allowed for curbside recycling include carpeting and clothing, diapers, dog and cat food bags, drywall, fast food items, furnace filters, hangers, household garbage, landscaping, non-container plastic, plastic bags, scrap metal, shoes, Styrofoam, tile and toys.

All recycled materials will be taken to the WM Material Recovery Facility in Surprise to be sorted and processed.

Glendale’s recycling program is one way for residents to help conserve natural resources and extend the life of the landfill by diverting recyclables out of the waste stream. Recycling is the process of collecting materials destined for disposal and reprocessing or remanufacturing them for further use. All single family homes are provided a 95 gallon recycling container.
