Green & Yard Waste

Every year, Waste Management offers Rio Rancho residents, with active accounts, two FREE yard and green waste cleanup weeks in the Spring and Fall. Please go to WM's website for information about the next semi-annual event. As needed, yard waste pickups are also offered for a fee, and are available the second Saturday of each month. Residents must call at least 3 days in advance to schedule a pickup at their residence for both the Spring/Fall and as-needed services, and can make their appointment by calling 505-892-1200.

Did you know...

Just because it will eventually biodegrade, when illegally thrown in our open spaces and mesa green waste IS considered illegal dumping! Illegally disposing of yard clippings, tree trimmings and other green waste creates a visual cue to other people telling them it's "ok" to dispose of the materials in unwanted areas. Do your part and make sure you take all of your unwanted waste, including green waste, to the proper facilities. To report illegal dumping utilize the city's Report Rio Rancho link on the city's main page or by clicking here.
