[ARCHIVED] Mayor Dickey and Mayors Across Arizona Unite to Celebrate Earth Day AZ

2022 earth day az map_220408For the second year, Arizona State University’s (ASU) Sustainable Cities Network and more than a dozen Mayors across Arizona are taking part in Earth Day AZ. This program is a collective effort to raise awareness about the many ways that Arizona cities, towns, and municipalities are demonstrating sustainability and climate action. Cities will also hold local events during the week of April 18-22, leading up to Earth Day on April 22.

Through a series of videos hosted on the Sustainable Cities Network’s webpage, local leaders describe their commitment to protecting Arizona’s precious and diverse natural resources and securing a thriving future for our state. The messages also encourage residents to consider small changes that can have a lasting environmental impact.

“We are so fortunate to live in one of the most beautiful communities in the state,” said Mayor Ginny Dickey. “Through our partnerships with Republic Services, EPCOR and Fountain Hills Sanitary District, we continue to commit to recycling and other programs to help keep our community safe and clean.”

This year’s list of community participants include:

City of Apache Junction                                   City of Phoenix

City of El Mirage                                             Town of Queen Creek

On Earth Day, the Town of Fountain Hills Community Services Department is partnering with Republic Services and EPCOR to help promote the importance of recycling with the ReCycle – ReCreate events.

There are activities for families and children to help educate and encourage recycling by building a Cardboard Fort, creating water bottle mobiles, gardening planting tips with recycled K-Cups, and a recycled art contest. And so much more creating art from materials destined for the trash.
