Members of the ARAC will assist ADEs Director Henry Darwin in administering recycling funds, awarding grant projects and promoting recycling throughout the state.

Individuals from the following areas are encouraged to apply for the position: 
  • Private solid waste collection businesses;  
  • Private solid waste recycling businesses; 
  • Political subdivisions with recycling and source reduction programs; and 
  • Members of the general public with a background in recycling. 

Appointees to the ARAC will serve for a three-year term and meet in Phoenix as needed to advise on the uses of the recycling fund, review and comment on proposed waste reduction plans and participate in ADEQ’s recycling grant program. Members of the committee who must travel more than 50 miles round trip in the performance of their duties will be reimbursed for travel expenses.
