Helping Santa Fe Rethink Their Waste
Every yard and garden has it, so why not turn it into something valuable? Instead of tossing green waste out with your garbage, consider the options to the right.
By mulching or composting your green waste you are helping to conserve landfill space and water – all while saving money on disposal fees. Large amounts of green waste is banned from the landfill.
Horse manure is accepted as green waste at BuRRT.
Mulch & Compost No-No’s:
- Pallets – Pallets usually have nails and are treated, which is not desired for landscape applications.
- Palm fronds – The fibers in a palm frond are too difficult to mulch or compost.
- Soil (clean or contaminated)
- Lumber – This includes plywood, sheet rock, and chipboard
- Tree trunks & stumps
