The ECIA office has been receiving calls from residents who were told by Waste Management to contact ECIA regarding the recycling pick-up program.
The Recycling Ordinance is mandated by Santa Fe County not ECIA. ECIA does not require any of its residents to use a specific vendor for any service.
We are currently working with Waste Management to clear any misunderstandings regarding this new ordinance.
Please be advised that Santa Fe County will hold a public hearing on Friday, October 28th at 10 am at the Santa Fe County Administration Building (102 Grant Ave.) to address the County Recycling Ordinance.
For more information you can contact Craig O’Hare with Santa Fe County at 505-992-3044 or the Santa Fe Country Commissioner’s office at 505-986-6202.

The most recent Eldorado Covenants and Guidelines do not address these types of lighting, but such lighting can be very bright and usually is not downward shielded.
