Recycling

Dreamland Villa is not in the City of Mesa, so there is no curb side recycle pickup. There are still many ways that you can recycle all kinds of items. Some options are right here in Dreamland Villa!  Recycling doesn't take that much effort. Give it a try! 

First: Dreamland Villa has four large green trash containers to collect newspaper, office paper, magizines, and cardboard which has been broken down.  Three of these containers are at the west side of the North Parking Lot at Read Hall.  The other one is located on the south side of the West Parking Lot at Farnsworth Hall.

Second: There is an Aluminum Can recycling container just across from the green trash containers. Aluminum cans are crushed by the members of the Lapidary Shop. They take them to a recycling center and receive a cash payment for them.  The funds are used to purchase supplies for the shop.  They make items and sell them at the Craft Sales.  Much of the money they make is turned back to Dreamland Villa Retirement Community to purchase items needed for the buildings.

Dreamland Villa has partnered with Sunshine Acres Childcare’s Home to assist them with funding through textile recycling. Phoenix Fibers is a textile recycling company located in Chandler. They will collect and recycle fibers. This is similar to our program for recycling paper. The fibers are used to make “GREEN” insulation. Every item gets a second use before entering the landfill, and no textiles are exported.

The Recycle Bin is located on the north parking lot near the DVCC Library. You may place:
  • all clothing, new, old, damaged
  • all linens including sheets
  • all towels
  • all types of shoes

For other large items such as televisions, furniture, appliances, electronics, antiques and kitchenware you may call Sunshine Acres to schedule a donation pickup at 480-981-4141.

Dreamland has this opportunity to reach out to the community to recycle textiles and give back to Sunshine Acres at the same time.
