Arizona highway rest areas are going green

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Arizona Department of Transportation has started a rest area recycling program.

The state is contracting with vendors to install large bins and smaller blue containers at the rest areas for travelers to use for their recyclable trash.

The vendor will collect the recyclables at least once a week. Right now, three rest areas in northern and western Arizona have the blue bins in place.

More will be added as the state brings in vendors in other areas.
