Notice to all Residents & Customers
North Central Solid Waste Authority has received numerous concerns in regards to the disposal of substances liable to spontaneous ignition.
Hot ashes or cinders, smoldering coals, greasy or oily substances liable to spontaneous ignition are prohibited from being disposed of in a residential polycart. Refuse of this type shall be placed in non-combustible container on a non-combustible surface at least 2 feet from any combustible wall, partition, or exterior window opening and at least 10 feet away from any other combustible materials. Ashes or cinders shall be cold for at least twenty-four hours prior to proper disposal.
In addition, no person shall dispose of any hot ashes or cinders, smoldering coals, greasy or oily substances liable to spontaneous ignitionin a manner that the person knows or should know will harm the environment or endangers the public health, welfare or safety of any employee or community member.
North Central Solid Waste Authority will no longer accept glass as recyclables after October 1, 2015. The facility that accepted the glass, Santa Fe County B.U.R.R.T recycling has modified their operation and has begun to transport their recycling to Friedman Recycling in Albuquerque.
The cost to haul glass separate from other recyclables is not cost efficiant for the Authority. Therefore, we will continue to offer single stream recycling to our customers at no cost.
Proper Polycart Placement
NCSWA uses "polycart trucks" - these trucks have arms on the side that pick up the polycart and dump it into the top of the truck. If the cart is turned sideways or backwards, the truck can't grab it to empty it, or can damage the polycart.
If the polycart is too close to something like a mailbox, fence post or parked car, it can "snag" on the object, or the arms can hit the object, causing damage. Please leave 16 inches between the carts when multiple carts are placed next to each other.
If the polycart is under a tree or wires, lifting it to empty it can cause damage to anything above the cart.
Please put your polycart with the wheels against the curb (wheels away from the road) and away from any obstruction, and with nothing overhead!
Please make sure the lid is closed.
Please bag your trash! When the polycart is dumped into the top of the truck, loose trash can fall out or be blown away, littering your yard or your neighbor's property!
