Waste Management and Recycling Services
The management of Solid Waste and Recycling for all APS Facilities and Sites is handled by Energy and Environmental Services Department.
The Department manages the disposal of regular classroom and nutrition solid waste materials. Recycling is serviced by APS' Contracted Hauler- Republic Services.
The updated 2019-2020 School Year Solid Waste and Recycling Schedule is available to download and review.
APS offers a comprehensive Recycling Program known as Single Stream Recycling (SSR) or Mixed Recycling. This means that materials that are part of the APS recycling program may be placed in a single collection bin. Only paper, aluminum cans, glass and plastic bottles may be placed in the recycling collections.
NEW for SY 2017-2018: Thanks to a grant from Recycle Across America and Bank of America-- APS Recycles Right! New Classroom and Office Bins have been delivered to all APS Schools. The bins have the newly designed standardized recycling labels that explain what can and can not be placed in the recycling bins.
