Solid Waste Management Plan and Reports

Solid Waste Management Plan

The Solid Waste Management Plan (“Plan”) guides decision making around solid waste and recycling statewide. The updated 2015 Plan articulates short- and long-term goals in the areas of waste characterization, diversion, facilities, education, funding, and environmental justice. The 2015 Plan 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.
