According to the Environmental Protection Agency, approximately 80 percent of what Americans throw away is recyclable. With ABQ Recycles, we can significantly change the amount of waste we put into our local landfill.

The City of Albuquerque has partnered with Friedman Recycling to operate a curbside recycling program called ABQ Recycles. The program makes curbside recycling easier than ever with a 96-gallon cart dedicated to recycling and one of the most expansive lists of accepted recyclable materials in the country.
