The Moment We've All Been Waiting For!

Albuquerque, NM – Mayor Richard J. Berry and the Solid Waste Management Department are happy to announce blue recycling carts will be arriving at your home.

Solid Waste Management residential customers that wish to find out when they will receive their blue recycling cart may click here. It’s simple, just enter your home address and the web tool will inform you of the month that you will receive your blue recycling cart.

Scheduled to be complete by the end of October 2013, the blue recycling carts will begin to be delivered this May. Each month the Solid Waste Management Department will distribute approximately 25,000 recycling carts.

Once individuals receive their recycling cart they may begin using them. We ask that all recycling carts be used for the approved recycling material and not trash. When placing the recycling cart at the curb the Department would also like to remind customers to keep a five foot distance between other trash carts.
