RECYCLING PROGRAMS IN THE VALLEY

 

Go Green Guidance is based in Phoenix, Arizona

Not sure what to do with all of those packing supplies? How about that old microwave? Your smoke detector? Here, you'll find ways to recycle or properly dispose of nearly everything in your home, including city-by-city links to several communities in the Valley of the Sun.

HOW TO RECYCLE YOUR:

BATTERIES

It is important to use rechargeable batteries whenever possible. Not only will you get more use out of them, but they are recyclable when they’ve outlived their usefulness. In order to keep your batteries functioning to the best of their abilities:

BACK

CELL PHONES

Cellphones contain a huge quantity of toxic materials, and some valuable metals as well. When your cell phone has outlived its usefulness, it’s important to have it taken care of in a responsible fashion.

BACK

COMPUTERS

E-waste is one of the most rapidly-growing problems in waste disposal, and it’s one that needs immediate attention. An old computer model can contain up to seven pounds of lead, not to mention other chemicals, and it’s important to prevent those materials from contaminating ground water.
