Recycling provides benefits for you, your community and the businesses of Las Cruces by reducing waste that must be put in landfills and then managed over decades. Because recycling has a business component, every time you recycle, it supports the many companies and employees in your community doing this important work. Recycling conserves our natural resources, saves landfill space, conserves energy and reduces water pollution, air pollution and the green house gas emissions that cause climate change. Together, Reducing, Reusing, Recycling and buying Recycled products make up a comprehensive waste and resource reduction strategy that benefits our natural world and our economy.
The Las Cruces Residential Recycling Program is co-mingled/"single stream". This means that all of the acceptable recyclable materials can be placed into your blue recycling container together.
Recycling pickups are every-other-week, on the same day as your trash pickup. To find out your recycling day, simply locate your home on the color-coded map. Your pickup area on the map corresponds to the same color on the calendar. Download both files for easy reference.
