Just finished giving your landscape a makeover? Consider green waste recycling rather than tossing it in your trash. Green waste that is not contaminated with trash can be mulched to prevent taking up space at the landfill.
City of Santa Fe Green Waste Pilot Program: If you are a resident of the City of Santa Fe, you are eligible to have your green waste picked up at your curb bi-weekly.
The Environmental Services Division is seeking participants for a pilot green waste program. The program will begin when 600 participants have signed up and will continue for one year. If successful, the program will be expanded to all city residents.
Cost: The cost will be $45 per the year
Pilot Duration: The pilot program will be conducted for 12 months.
Application: You can download an online application or sign up in our office, located at 1142 Siler Rd, Building A.
Participants will be provided a separate container for green waste which will be placed on the curb with the trash and recycling bins on your collection day. Only green waste may be placed in the container such as twigs, leaves, small branches and other compostable landscaping materials. No food waste may be included.
