The Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Collection Center, conveniently located at the Buckman Road Recycling and Transfer Station (BuRRT), will open on Friday, September 14, 2012. All Santa Fe City and County residents will be able to properly dispose of their HHW starting at 1:00pm when the facility opens its doors for collection. The grand opening will take place earlier that morning at 10:00 am.
The 2,400-square foot facility will provide space for the handling and storage of HHW and will be open year round on Fridays and Saturdays from 8:00 am to 4:45 pm, except Holidays. Residents can bring in their HHW for a nominal fee of $50 per ton based on 20 pound increments (e.g., if you bring in 20lbs or less you will pay a $0.55). If trash is mixed in with the HHW, there will be a $6.30 minimum charge.
