Recycling waste has become a major issue for the preservation in the state of New Mexico. Unfortunately overconsumption and waste production like it is the case all over the USA, have a negative impact on our environment and threatens our sustainability. They are large contributors to global warming. By recycling more and better, we can limit the exploitation of natural resources and reduce pollution. Here are the best ways to recycle your waste for a greener world.

Selective sorting

According to Albert Wilson, CEO of waste management company Easy Albuquerque Dumpster Rentals, selective sorting is an essential first step in the recycling process. It consists in separating waste according to its composition (plastic, glass, paper, metal, etc.) so that it can be treated in a specific way. To facilitate sorting, using colored bins or bags of different colors is very practical. Don’t forget to check your municipality’s sorting instructions to find out how to properly sort your waste.


Composting is a natural recycling method that transforms organic waste into a natural fertilizer for plants. Simply collect your kitchen waste (fruit and vegetable peelings, coffee grounds, egg shells, etc.) and place them in a composter. The compost obtained can then be used to enrich your garden or your indoor plants.

Gift and barter

To avoid throwing away items that are still in good condition, give them away or exchange them with other people. To do this, take part in garage sales, donate clothes to associations or even exchange books with your friends. These actions help extend the life of useful objects and reduce the amount of waste.

Creative recycling

Creative recycling consists of giving a second life to objects by transforming them into new useful or decorative objects. For example, you can use plastic bottles to make flower pots, tin cans to make pencil holders or even old newspapers to make decorative objects. This will reduce the amount of waste while developing your creativity.
