Recycling Advisory Committee Legal & Public Notices
This section provides an archive and record of recent and past Legal Notices for the Recycling Advisory Committee, including notices for meetings and events that have already taken place:

Open Meetings Act Compliance
Public access to the proceedings and decision-making processes of governmental boards, agencies and commissions is an essential element of a properly functioning democracy. We believe strongly in open government. Meetings held by public officials to discuss public business, particularly when conducted with the public taxpayers’ money, are the taxpayers’ business. The Open Meetings Act is one of New Mexico’s 'good government' laws, and it deserves the full support of all New Mexicans.

About the Recycling Advisory Committee
If you are a Silver City resident or business owner and your trash is collected by the town of Silver City, then you are eligible for curbside recycling services provided under contract with Southwest Solid Waste Authority. To get started, call SWSWA at 388-8051 to request a free bin. Recycling is picked up on your regular trash day by a special recycling truck.

In case of problems with recycling pick-up, call 388-8051. If you have problems with your trash collection, call Public Works at 388-4640. Silver City residents and businesses recycled close to 2 million pounds of cardboard, paper, plastic, metal, and glass in fiscal year 2007, an increase of 23 percent over the previous year. With your help, we can do even better this year.

Every pound of recyclable material we keep out of the landfill is money saved for our city and county and its taxpayers.

The Town has a stated goal to divert at least 11 percent of its wastes from the landfill. The Committee was formed by the Town Council on September 13, 2005. The operation of the committee was amended by resolution July 24, 2007.
