New memo on recycling in Arizona

In September, graduate students from the Conservation Innovation lab published a memo addressing how to reinvigorate recycling in Arizona through state-level policy reform. By interviewing recycling coordinators from across the state, they learned that the majority of municipalities have been forced to alter their programs due to changing international markets and a lack of state-level support. Despite these challenges, interviewees view an investment in the recycling sector as an opportunity to improve the economic, environmental and social well-being of their community.

In response to these challenges, the authors identified ways Arizona policy-makers can reinvigorate recycling in Arizona.

To support this effort, please sign this petition asking the state to fund the recycling program and share this graphic on social media.

This memo was written by Erin Murphy, Miranda Bernard, Infynity Hill, Alex Tunas-Corzon and Levi Helm.
