The City of Santa Fe Environmental Services Division (ESD) has reopened the recycling drop-off center located at 4009 Lucia Ln., Santa Fe, NM 87507. The reopening is the first step in a phased reopening strategy: it gives residents an alternative drop-off location to the Buckman Road Recycling & Transfer Station (BuRRT), located on the northside of Santa Fe, while ESD staff makes signage and safety updates to the additional sites.
“The Lucia Lane drop-off site is the furthest from BuRRT, giving residents in the central and south areas of Santa Fe a closer option than the transfer station,” said Shirlene Sitton, Environmental Services Division Director. “The recently conducted City-wide survey indicated that the drop-off locations are a high priority for residents. Reopening the Lucia Lane site allows us to provide residents with another option for this essential service while still managing limited resources due to COVID-19.”
The newly reopened site has new glass drop-off containers, new, color-coded lids for each bin, and new bilingual instructional signage. The site also has signage for COVID-safety, reminding residents to maintain a 6ft distance from each other, wear masks, and wait their turn before approaching the containers.
ESD reminds residents that the drop-off locations are for recycling only - leaving trash at the location is considered illegal dumping, and is subject to fines up to $500 per occurrence.
BuRRT is located at 2600 Buckman Road, Santa Fe, NM, 87507, and is open from 8:00 AM to 4:45 PM, 7 days a week. BuRRT’s recycling drop-off accepts glass and all curbside recyclable materials. There is no fee for using the recycling drop-off.
