Meetings Continue to Discuss Recycling Collection Changes

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.

Public meetings are taking place this month to discuss the change. The next meeting is tomorrow, Sept. 12, 5:30-7:30 p.m., at the Donna R. Liggins Recreation Center, 2160 N. 6th Ave. For questions, call (520) 791-3171 or email
