Recycling at Schools

Although the City of Chandler does not provide recycling or trash collection to schools (Only single-family homes up to tri-plexes)m we do offer to meet with student organizations and school staff to share best practices on how to make your school's recycling program a success.

 Chandler Unified and Kyrene School Districts contract with a private commercial hauler for recycling and trash collection at all of their schools.  If you have questions about recycling collection at these schools, please contact the school's district office. Chandler schools, not associated with either District, interested in receiving recycling collection should work with their school administration to choose a private commercial hauler permitted by the City of Chandler.
For more information or to schedule a presentation, call Solid Waste Services at 480-782-3510.
