State-of-the-Art Recycling Center Opens in Arizona

Republic Services celebrated the opening of our brand new, state-of-the-art Salt River Recycling Center on January 23!  The 51,000-square-foot facility, located in the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community near Phoenix, will manage recyclables from approximately 1.4 million residents and more than 2,000 businesses throughout the region.

“The new Salt River Recycling Center reinforces Republic Services’ commitment to circularity, sustainability and the community,” said Southwest Area President Javara P. “This facility will help meet the growing demand for recycling throughout the Valley and help our customers achieve their sustainability goals.”

Plastics from the Salt River Recycling Center will be transported to Republic’s new Polymer Center in Las Vegas.  The Polymer Center’s innovative processes will grind, sort and wash the plastics to become new bottles, jugs and containers, enabling true bottle-to-bottle circularity.
