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 two are tomorrow, Sept. 14, 10 a.m.-noon, at the Quincie Douglas Neighborhood Center, 1575 E. 36th St., and Monday, Sept. 16, 5:30-7:30 p.m., at the Ward 6 Council office, 3202 E.1st St.
