Helping Santa Fe rethink their waste
Recycle
Illegal Dumping
Despite the many names (waste, refuse, garbage, litter, junk), there is only one place that trash ends up: the landfill. Whether you put it in your curbside can, toss it at the convenience center, or illegally dump it, trash will be buried in the ground forever unless it’s reused, recycled, or composted.


PHONE BOOK RECYCLING
You can recycle your phone books at any of the following drop off bin locations:
BuRRT >
County Transfer Stations >
BUCKMAN ROAD RECYCLING & TRANSFER STATION HOURS: 8:00am - 4:45pm Mon - Sun
CAJA DEL RIO LANDFILL
HOURS: 7:00am - 5:00pm Mon - Sat
When you toss materials anywhere but the appropriate bin, it is considered dumping or littering, and it is illegal.

When Santa Fe County and City residents do not want to pay to properly dispose of their trash, it ends up in the arroyo or open space, polluting the habitat for both animals and humans.

Rethink illegal dumping

Most of the materials that are found at illegal dump sites can be recycled or reused.  Consider the reuse of your unwanted materials at a donation center, posting it on Craigslist, or having a garage sale.

Items like common recyclables, electronics, hazardous waste, bulky metals and/or appliances, that are not suited for reuse can be recycled for free or a small fee.

If you live in the City, you can schedule a large items collection at a pick up rate of $25.75 plus tax by contacting the City curbside pickup.

Do your part.  Take your unwanted materials to BuRRT to have it disposed of properly.
