Sierra Club Hands Out Recycling Bins

Santa Fe’s Environmental Services Division, in cooperation with the Sierra Club, will have residential recycling bins available for city residents on Wednesday from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Geneva Chavez Community Center.

The Sierra Club has committed to helping distribute bins the third Wednesday of every month through April.

Residents can pick up two containers, but they must already have residential curbside service. They can bring in their old, broken containers to the GCCC on Wednesday or drop them off at 1142 Siler Road anytime. The old containers are returned to the manufacturer, where they are recycled.

For more information, call the Environmental Services Division at 505-955-2200.
