Community Recycling
Bring your community together for a common goal
and earn money for your efforts
Being Green or joining a recycling campaign might be on the top of everyone’s mind, but here at United Fibers it’s been part of our culture for nearly 30 years.

United Fibers is committed to working with schools, businesses, churches, organizations and charity based groups with the means of going green. The Green Depot program is designed to divert recyclable materials from landfill and convert them into money.

In 2010, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimated that Maricopa County alone produced over 3 million tons of waste received through landfill. It also established that 35 percent of landfill waste could have been diverted through recycling.
