Waste Reduction - Recycling


Pima County Curbside Recycling Program

  • Your waste hauler provides collection of recyclables at least once a week, as per county ordinance.

  • Place your recyclables in a clean container (cardboard or plastic box, or the container provided by your waste hauler).

  • Plastic bags will not be collected and may cause a litter problem.

  • Remove lids, rinse and flatten plastic containers, cut cardboard into 3' x 3' pieces.

  • Check with your waste hauler for day and location of pick-up.

  • Many haulers have expanded their list of recyclables.

City of Tucson Curbside Recycle Program

The City of Tucson operates the Tucson Recycles Blue Barrel program. City residents who have curbside recycling and small businesses who have City garbage service in plastic containers received blue barrels for easy recycling. Just fill the blue barrel with the acceptable materials and roll it to the curb on the same day as your garbage service.

What Items Can I Recycle with the Blue Barrel program?

It's never been closer! Almost all City residents are within 2.5 miles of a Neighborhood Recycling Center. The centers are intended to give apartment dwellers and small businesses the opportunity to recycle, but are available for use by all Tucson residents.
