Due to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, the Santa Fe Solid Waste Management Agency continues to operate the Buckman Road Recycling & Transfer Station (BuRRT) for essential services only.
Residents without curbside trash collection service may dispose of their household trash at BuRRT Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. BuRRT is closed on weekends until further notice.
To minimize potential exposure of the coronavirus disease to the residents and Agency employees, BuRRT will continue not to accept these items from residents and non-essential businesses until further notice:
- Trash from “Spring cleaning”
- Trash from cleanups of garages and backyards
- Trash from remodeling projects
- Bulky items such as old furniture, mattresses, appliances
- Green waste
- Recyclable materials including glass bottles
- Household hazardous waste such as paint, oil, chemicals, batteries and fluorescent bulbs.
- E-waste, including computers and televisions
The Agency encourages residents and non-essential businesses to postpone or minimize all non-essential disposal and recycling activities. Residents and non-essential businesses are asked to place waste and recyclables in their curbside carts as they are generated.
Any non-essential services that are necessary to maintain the safety and sanitation of residences or non-essential businesses are determined by the Agency case-by-case.
BuRRT is open to essential businesses, including waste haulers and commercial account holders. Essential businesses without a commercial account are determined by the Agency case-by-case.
The Agency requests that customers who are sick do not use BuRRT. Customers should protect themselves by maintaining the recommended 6-foot social distance to reduce coronavirus transmission risks. The Agency has directed its staff to limit hand-to-hand and other close interactions with customers.
