I Recycle Phoenix is back, where local residents can clear out their items and stay green for 2019. It will take place at Christown Spectrum Mall on Saturday, Jan. 5, from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. The drop-off area will be located on the back side of Walmart, off of Montebello and 15h avenues.
This event, organized by Keep Phoenix Beautiful, provides residents across the Valley a simple, easy way to repurpose recyclable items, which reduces the waste in Arizona landfills.
Items accepted include hard drives, cell phones, laptops and other electronics, housewares, office supplies, rechargeable batteries, bicycles, and safe shredding of personal documents.
Also, unique to Saturday’s event, Christmas trees and wreaths for mulching will be accepted. Remove all tinsel, hooks, and decorations first.
Some of the items not accepted include single-use batteries (AA/AAA) and light bulbs, prescription drugs and hazardous waste like oil, paint, or chemicals.
