VALLEYWIDE RECYCLING PARTNERSHIP
The Valleywide Recycling Partnership (VRP) is an organization of municipalities, towns and jurisdictions within Maricopa County. VRP represents communities that care and promote environmental stewardship through recycling. VRP\'s vision is to collectively bring together public agencies with a consistent message to recycle through mass media campaigns. Over the last ten years, VRP has provided awareness, outreach and education to the public on how to properly reduce, reuse, and recycle to conserve landfill space and preserve natural resources. In 2000, the partnership began with seven municipalities; today VRP has grown to twenty-one members. The funding for the partnership is obtained through grants, sponsorship and annual membership dues determined by each jurisdiction\'s population.
