Although it is not the answer to reducing our impact on the environment, it does provide a way to use valuable materials more than once. If we didn’t recycle, we could end up extracting and using non renewable resources (precious metals and oil) until they are completely depleted.
There are many different items that you can recycle in Santa Fe, where you can recycle it just depends on what the item is. You can recycle electronics, hazardous waste, and green waste, but this section will concentrate on common recyclables that don’t require special handling or care.
All types of paper including paperboard and cardboard, all plastic containers, and metals such as foil, aluminum, and tin can be recycled. Please make sure your recyclables are clean and dry and that you leave on all caps. Please do not crush your recyclables. Glass can also be recycled but it needs to be in a separate bin. See the materials to the right to find out where your items are accepted.
