Beginning in late June, the City of Tucson Environmental and General Services Department will begin relocation and closure of several Neighborhood Recycling Centers located throughout the city.
The decision to close the centers is the result of an evaluation process concluded in April. Increased illegal dumping has caused blight conditions at the sites, and a reduced amount of recyclable materials at some of the sites is outweighing the intended benefits of the recycling program.
Signs will be posted at each of the closure sites.
Four new locations will be established by July 1. For a complete list of the recycling center sites, click here.
