Solid Waste Management Plans

An updated Solid Waste Management Plan for New Mexico has been released by the state Environment Department, Solid Waste Bureau.

The Solid Waste Management Plan (“Plan”) guides decision making around solid waste and recycling statewide. The updated Plan articulates short- and long-term goals in the areas of waste characterization, diversion, facilities, education, funding, and environmental justice. The newly released version updates the 2007 Plan with specific action steps local communities, state government, and other groups can take to meet these goals.

Stakeholder input was important in the development of this Plan, and as always, the Solid Waste Bureau is proud to collaborate with partners around the state to continue the important work of protecting the environment, health, and quality of life for all New Mexicans.
