The Town of Taos needs recycling- and our recycling center is at risk for being shut down. 

It is our duty to keep recyclable materials out of the landfill and care for our planet.

As of now, there is talk of closing Taos' recycling center because of lost revenue and large operational costs.

We as a town pride ourselves on our heritage, culture and beautiful landscape. Our river, the Rio Grande depends on us. Our children, and generations to come, depend on us to do the right thing. We need to manage our waste!

The solution to this problem is to avoid purchasing glass and plastic in the first place, thus reducing our reliance on these single use vessels. But until that changes, we need recycling in our town! We need to educate our residents about how to recycle, and make it part of our pickup service from Waste Management! This ensures better sorting, and protects cardboard, etc from the weather. 

Lets reduce our consumption of plastics and glass in the first place. Lets recycle what we do use, lets use our recycling center to our advantage, initiate curbside recycling and encourage the economy to change for the better! There is no one entity to blame, and this is a very complex issue. But we can overcome these obstacles together!
