Santa Fe Environmental Services Expands Curbside Recycling Program

Beginning July 20, 2015, the City of Santa Fe Environmental Services Division has expanded the materials collected in our curbside recycling program. 

Additional materials to be accepted will be:

Phone Books
Paperboard/Chipboard (e.g., cereal boxes, egg cartons, beverage packaging material) 
Paperback and Hardcover Books
Plastics (#3 - #7), including bottles, jars, yogurt/margarine tubs, deli/salad clamshells (non acceptable plastics include styrofoam and plastic bags)
Milk Cartons and Drink Boxes.   

The additional materials can be added to your mixed recycling container, and glass must be in the separate in the second container. 

Santa Fe Residents can pick up recycling containers Monday through Friday at 1142 Siler Road, Building A.  Recycling bins are often made available at certain community events like Santa Fe Bandstand and others.

Mayor Javier M. Gonzales said, “As we continue to lead Santa Fe toward greater sustainability, we’ve got to continually push the envelope a little further when it comes to reducing our impact. Even as we explore new and exciting technologies in sustainability – some of the basics never change, and recycling is one of those basics. One of our biggest impacts can come by reusing materials, reducing what we throw away and recycling what we can.”

For more information please contact the Environmental Services Division at 505.955.2200 or 505.955-2209.
