Recycling Good for Peoria

Letter from Public Works Director to Residents


Recently, we've received questions from our residents about Peoria's recycling program. I am delighted to take this opportunity to give your readers a little bit of background information and the progress of the program.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has collected and reported data on the generation and disposal of waste in the United States for more than 30 years. The EPA has found that there are significant environmental and economic benefits associated with recycling. Recycling helps create jobs, can be more cost effective than trash collection, reduces the need for new landfills, saves energy, supplies valuable raw materials to industry, and adds significantly to the economy. In October 2011, Peoria’s recycling program turned four years old, and has indeed created environmental and economic benefits for Peoria.

Since implementation, Peoria residents have recycled more than 59,066 tons, while the remaining 199,684 tons have been disposed at a landfill. Year one of the program resulted in recycling 17 percent of Peoria’s residential trash; for each of the past three years, it has been at 25 percent. Keeping this volume of material out of the landfills is significant. Through an agreement with the city of Phoenix, Peoria processes the recyclables at the North Gateway Materials Recovery Facility. Through this process, Peoria has received payment of approximately $1.45 million, while at the same time, saving $1.4 million in landfill disposal fees. These savings have contributed to the current proposal before City Council to reduce trash collection fees by 13 percent for Peoria residents.

The national recycling rate for 2010 reported by EPA is 34%. Of course we can improve the success of our program by increasing the number of tons that are recycled and improving the quality of the recyclables. This can only be accomplished with our residents’ continued commitment to recycling. Reducing the amount of recyclables in your trash barrels immediately increases our revenues for recycling while reducing our landfill costs. Reducing the contaminates of trash in your recycling barrels equates to higher recycling revenues as well, as the price received by the city is impacted by the contamination level which nets less revenue. You can learn more about recycling by requesting information, a presentation to a school or community group, or by taking a tour of the North Gateway MRF where you can experience firsthand the recycling sorting process. Contact the city of Peoria at 623-773-7160, view our website at www.peoriaaz.gov/recycle, or send an e-mail to reycling@peoriaaz.gov.

So when you place those recyclables in the recycle barrel, be assured that the material is being recycled and Peoria residents will continue to reap the rewards - both environmental and economical - of recycling.
