The Solid Waste Department kicks off its Fall Green Waste collection on Monday, November 29 through Friday, December 10. Solid Waste customers should have their Green Waste at the curb by 7 a.m. on the day of their regular trash collection day. All Green Waste must be placed 5 feet from automated trash and recycling containers as well as any large items scheduled for pick-up. Solid Waste customers must place their Green Waste (leaves, grass, and brush) in trash bags. Each trash bag should not weigh more than 40 pounds. Customers that have branches must cut them to four-foot lengths and bundle them securely.
The following items will not be picked up: dirt, construction debris, gravel, construction material or tree stumps. To learn more about this year’s green waste collection event, visit: https://www.cabq.gov/solidwaste/green-waste
