What We Take and Where It Goes
Tempe is committed to managing waste responsibly and works closely with its partners to ensure the material is diverted from the landfill and recycled or reused. Here is an overview of what we take on Zero Waste Day and where it all goes.

Paper for shredding
Office paper, mail, other personal paper documents, magazines, books in poor condition

Documents are securely shredded and recycled by ASDD Document Destruction, a branch of the Tempe nonprofit, the Centers for Habilitation, which provides support and opportunities for people with physical and developmental disabilities.

Tires
Automobile tires are accepted. No bicycle or truck tires.
Tires are taken to the Southeast Waste Tire Collection Site run by the Maricopa County Waste Resources & Recycling Department and recycled into many items including crumb rubber, which is used in asphalt.

Clothing, furniture and household items
Items should be in good condition. Clothing, shoes, purses, belts, bedding, towels, toys, stuffed animals, books, cooking accessories, furniture, home décor, housewares, jewelry, tools, musical instruments, sports equipment.

Sold for reuse and recycled by Goodwill of Central Arizona which diverted over 100 million pounds of material from the landfill through reuse and recycling in 2015.
