Carts are eligible for use as soon as they are delivered! So look for your cart soon. Wondering where your cart is?

Mix all accepted materials together in your cart, no bundling required!  Leave materials loose, do not put in bags.

Glass is not accepted in your blue cart.   Click here for glass recycling information.

You can still recycle glass as well as anything you might normally put in your recycling cart, at the brand new recycling drop-off centers launched by the City, and at the Buckman Road Recycling and Transfer Station.  Recycling drop-off centers are open to everyone, including apartment dwellers and small businesses.


Once you get a new cart, start using it!  Your old bins will no longer be collected, but you can use them to bring glass and other materials to the new recycling drop-off centers or recycle them in your new cart if they are broken.   If the bins are still usable, but you don’t want them, bring them to the Siler Road Recycling Drop-off Center for reuse.

NOTE:  The Fort Marcy and Lucia Lane recycling drop-off centers will be open by April 3rd.  The Siler Road recycling drop-off center is NOW OPEN


A limited number of Pink Carts™ were made available to cancer survivors and their family/friends.  Cascade Engineering and the the City of Santa Fe have made a $5,000.00 donation to the local chapter of the American Cancer Society chapter.   This funding supports the Santa Fe Making Strides Against Breast Cancer initiatives, which the City sponsors annually.  Check back in August 2017 for information for a second distribution of Pink Carts™ in the fall.
