The Agency operates both BuRRT and the Caja del Rio Landfill, which provide a safe and environmentally responsible way for residents and businesses to dispose of their waste and recyclables.
Due to COVID-19 concerns, the Buckman Road Recycling & Transfer Station (BuRRT) and Caja del Rio Landfill will reduce operating hours, effective Monday, March 23, 2020.
The reduced hours will remain in effect until further notice.
SFSWMA is committed to be an innovative, responsive, and integrated solid waste organization that provides a safe, cost-efficient and environmentally-sound management of solid waste generated for its customers in Santa Fe County while educating the public in the importance of waste diversion programs including waste reduction, recycling, composting, and special waste.
The Caja Del Rio Landfill continues to fill its latest solid waste disposal cell, Cell 5B. More Info
It is anticipated that Cell 5B will be used for waste disposal activities until 2020. However, design and construction Cell 6B will likely begin in 2019 or early 2020. No blasting is anticipated in conjunction with the construction activities. This timeline allows for necessary approvals to be in place prior to use by the Agency for disposal activities. It is anticipated that Cell 6B will last approximately 5-7 years before the Agency builds out the vertical expansion approved in the 2015 New Mexico Environment Department Solid Waste Bureau operations permit. The total life of the vertical expansion is approximately 10 years.
