Information about recycling bags.
Coupons for a free roll of 30 clear plastic recycling bags are mailed to Albuquerque residents in water/ refuse bills every August. The coupon was included as an insert in your water/refuse bill. Let us know if you fail to receive a coupon with your August water bill.
Coupons are redeemable at the Solid Waste Management Department's Administrative Offices at 4600 Edith NE, at Albuquerque Senior Centers and at a number of retail outlets throughout the city. Recycling bags can also be purchased year-round for $5.25 per roll of 30 bags at several of these and other locations (listed below).
Black plastic refuse (trash) bags in boxes of 50 can be purchased for $14.00 at two City of Albuquerque locations. See below for a complete list of locations and a link for the Senior Centers for both refuse and recycling bags. If you plan to pick up bags at a location other than the Solid Waste Management Department office or DFM Treasury, we recommend telephoning the vendor first to ensure a current stock of bags.
