Recycle Today for Wickenburg's Tomorrow!

The Public Works Department oversees the recycling program as a division of its Sanitation service. Curbside recycling collection, which began in 2011, has significantly increased the volume of diversion from the normal waste stream. Annually, Wickenburg residents divert nearly 700 tons of recycling. This diversion is not only environmentally friendly; it reduces expenses and creates revenue to help offset the rising costs of operating the sanitation service.

For electronics recycling events have been temporarily suspended to the COVID -19 emergency.  We will announce scheduling as soon as available.

Recycling Tips


Please keep these items out of your recycling bin: plastic bags, plastic wrap, grocery bags, styrofoam, yard waste, napkins, diapers, facial and toilet tissue, paper plates, waxed paperboard or shredded paper!

Please dispose of your recyclables loose. You may co-mingle (mix) all of these materials- no need to sort! Please drain beverages and rinse food particles out of recyclables to minimize odor and flies.
