As a reminder, candidates and residents with plastic or cardboard election signs are encouraged to recycle them at the following locations:
- 27th Avenue Transfer Station, 3060 S. 27th Ave.
- North Gateway Transfer Station, 30205 N. Black Canyon Highway
- ReCommunity, 1919 E. University Dr.
The signs must be disassembled (wire and wooden stakes removed) and sorted into separate bins at the transfer station. Large signs must be cut into pieces no larger than 3 feet x 3 feet. Small quantities of disassembled signs may be cut up and placed in your residential blue recycling bin.
If you bring in signs for recycling, please inform the scalehouse clerk that you have election signs, or recyclables otherwise you will be charged the regular refuse rate. (If you have trash you will be charged.)
Also, election-related materials, such as postcards, door hangers and publicity pamphlets may be placed in your blue recycling container.
For more information, call the city’s Public Works Department at 602-262-7251 or visit phoenix.gov/publicworks. Connect with Public Works on social media at facebook.com/phoenixtrashandrecycle or @TalkingTrashPHX.
