Los Lunas Recycling Program

Overview

The Village of Los Lunas Recycling Program began in 1993. With time and with dedicated staff, the community now has access to a State registered drop-off recycling center located just north of the Fred Luna Multigenerational Center on Don Pasqual Road.

The Solid Waste Division Management Recycling Goals:

  • Goal: To provide a safe, economical and uninterrupted recycling service to all residents within the community.
  • Goal: To expanding the recycling efforts (source reduction) in support of protecting our natural resources and environment while reducing landfill costs and generating revenue from recyclable materials.
  • Goal: To provide onsite cardboard pickup service to local commercial business intended to capture and divert as much old corrugated cardboard (OCC) prior to entering the solid waste stream.
