Biweekly Recycling Collection Starts Sept. 30

The City of Tucson’s Environmental & General Services Department (EGSD) will change residential recycling collection from every week to every other week beginning the week of Sept. 30.

The day of the week for a customer's recycling collection will not change. A bill insert with a map and schedule is included with September utility services statements. Each resident will also receive a direct mail piece listing their collection schedule and map.

Seven open public meetings will take place this month. The first two are on Tuesday, Sept. 10, 5:30-7:30 p.m., at Fred Archer Neighborhood Center, 1655 S. La Cholla Blvd., and on Wednesday, Sept. 11, 5:30-7:30 p.m., at the Morris K. Udall Regional Center, 7200 E. Tanque Verde Road. For questions, call (520) 791-3171 or email
