My Waste
The age old task of taking out the trash just went high tech. The City's Environmental Services Department is pleased to announce the My Waste app is available to smart phone users. Receive reminders about holiday pick up, brush and bulky, and much more.

911 Upgrade, Technology for Safety's Sake
The City's Communications Center has implemented a Computer Aided Dispatch system upgrading a system over two decades old. With the new system, callers to 911 will only need to relay their information to a single individual eliminating precious seconds between call handling and dispatch. Emergency responders can now react faster than ever before.

Do More Blue
Last summer the City opened a new state-of-the-art recycling facility. For Tucsonans that means no more looking at the numbers - if it's a plastic container, it's recyclable! New optical sorting methods result in less contamination and the capture of more materials. This is just one of the innovations that helped Tucson win the Municipality of the Year award from the Arizona Recycling Coalition.

What does transportation for the 21st Century look like? It looks a lot like Sun Link, the Tucson Streetcar Project. Sun Link provides a transit oriented solution to many current issues by minimizing our impact on the environment, promoting physical activity, and stimulating the local economy.
