Recycle Almost Anything at Desert Ridge Marketplace on October 26

The holidays are around the corner. If you need to make room for new gifts in the New Year, Keep Phoenix Beautiful has the perfect event to recycle your unneeded household items. I Recycle Phoenix returns to Desert Ridge Marketplace on Oct. 26, providing an opportunity for the public to clear out items and stay green in 2019.

“You might not need that old printer, bike or shirt, but those items make a huge difference to our community partners,” said Tom Waldeck, President and CEO of Keep Phoenix Beautiful. “I Recycle Phoenix is the perfect event to get rid of your clutter and do good for the environment and nonprofits.” 

I Recycle Phoenix begins at 7 a.m. and accepts numerous items for drop off. Many items can also be repurposed for companies and organizations who can use the products for their needs. The public can also shred up to five boxes of important documents like old tax returns safely and conveniently for FREE. Other accepted items include hard drives, bikes, cell phones, flat screen televisions, laptops and other electronics, school supplies, nonperishable food and housewares, office supplies, rechargeable batteries. Items not accepted include single-use batteries, CRT televisions and monitors, prescription drugs and hazardous waste like oil, paint and chemicals.

I Recycle Phoenix is possible thanks to many community partners, including City of Phoenix Public Works, Westech Recyclers, Treasures 4 Teachers, Batteries Plus Bulbs, Security Data Destruction, ICM Food & Clothing Bank and Bike Saviors.
