PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

Nov. 15, known as "America Recycles Day," was officially named "Phoenix Recycles Day" by Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton.

The Phoenix City Council approved the City of Phoenix's 2050 Sustainability Plan back in 2016, which would make the city a zero-waste city by 2050.

The program is designed to increase the waste diversion rate from landfills by 40 percent by 2020.
