The City of Mesa offers three 24-hour drop-off location sites for the public to recycle their materials.  All items placed in the recycle bins should be loose.  As a courtesy to our guests, specially marked barrels are located at each site for guests to deposit their empty plastic bags once they have recycled their items.
