Environmental Program

Mission: The City of Sunland Park’s Environmental Program exists to enable individual citizens, businesses and governmental organizations to synergize, cooperate and communicate in a transparent environment, working together to build a sustainable, resilient and regenerative environment, thanking globally but acting locally, and defending the three cornerstones of a successful municipality: our desert eco-systems, our economic activities, and the equitable and just foundation of our multicultural community.

Recycling Guidelines

The City of Sunland Park wants to ensure that we recycle right. If we don’t, this leads to cross-contamination of the whole recycling load. When this happens, all the recycling in the load will be landfilled. In order to make sure this does not happen, here is some information to recycle RIGHT!

Clean-Up Events

  • Clean Up Events: Every year the City of Sunland Park hosts multiple clean up events to preserve and beautify our wonderful community. With help from both the New Mexico Clean and Beautiful Grant and the Recycling and Illegal Dumping (RAID) Grant, these events are fiscally possible. During these events, activities consist of litter collection as well as a tire abatement program. All events are held at the Sports Complex located at 4700 McNutt Road, Santa Teresa, NM 88008. Please check below for 2022’s dates!
    • We are always looking for volunteers to join in our efforts to make Sunland Park beautiful. To join in on the fun, please email the Environmental Specialist at hope.vanbrocklin@sunlandpark-nm.gov or call at 575-589-3631 x 1010.
