PHOENIX - A change in city collection service in Phoenix will mean one less thing for you to do every week.
Phoenix is streamlining its trash and recycling process as both bins will be picked up on the same day starting Monday, July 9.
The city calls the program "New Way, Same Day" and the goal is to increase efficiency and keep costs down.
According to Phoenix, the move will save $1.3 million a year and eliminate 12 trucks.
Customers are asked to wheel out their recycling and trash bins once a week on collection day.
To check your neighborhood's collection schedule, call 602-262-7251 or visit the city's website.
