Municipal Solid Waste

Arizona received approval from EPA for its solid waste program in December of 1994. The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality Exiting EPA (disclaimer) administers the state’s solid waste program.

Arizona State Agencies

The Solid Waste Section of Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) Exiting EPA (disclaimer) manages Arizona's solid waste stream. ADEQ also promotes source reduction, reuse, recycling and buying recycled through grants, a hotline, recycling market development programs, and data management.

The Arizona Department of Commerce Exiting EPA (disclaimer) offers assistance to businesses that use, process, or manufacture recycled materials.

Arizona does not have a state goal or mandate for waste reduction or recycling.

Arizona Solid Waste Grants

In 1997, Arizona provided more than $1.5 million for waste reduction initiatives. Arizona offers two different grant programs - Waste Reduction Assistance (WRA) grants and Waste Reduction Initiative Through Education (WRITE) grants. These grants provide assistance to private business, nonprofit organizations, and governmental agencies for demonstration projects, research, recycling market development, waste prevention projects, and waste reduction education. Check with ADEQ for specific requirements.
