Community Recycling Update
The Recycling Committee is now developing implementation plans for when recycling drop off containers will be located at Anthem. The Town of Florence and Pinal County have both approved the agreement for the purchase and management of the containers to be located at Anthem. It is expected that the containers will arrive in late June. The Town is also beginning to investigate the implementation of a more comprehensive approach to recycling to possibly include curbside collection. This would not happen for some time, but at least they are now considering it. Contact has been made with the Anthem School principal and she has indicated full support for all recycling efforts. A Recycling handout indicating the current drop off points and the type of materials that are accepted is available on the Anthem Recycling Committee page on the portal under News.
