Today, Mayor Greg Stanton announced a new citywide sustainability initiative, Reimagine Phoenix, to reduce the amount of trash sent to city landfills by 40 percent by the year 2020. Otherwise known as 40/20.
This goal will be reached by:
• encouraging sustainable practices such as recycling and composting
• partnering with key community and business leaders
• increasing education and awareness to residents and businesses
The 5 R‘s to remember are: Reduce, Reuse, Reycle, Reconsider and Reimagine.
I had the privilege of meeting business leaders from the Arizona Diamondbacks, Bashas’, Republic Services, PetSmart, Keep Phoenix Beautiful and Phoenix Public Works. I am so very proud of our City and it’s commitment to sustainability. To find out more visit.
