The state recently released the 2015 diversion numbers for New Mexico. The Recycling rate held steady at 16% and the diversion rate dropped a bit to 19%. To see the numbers please visit https://www.env.nm.gov/swb/documents/CY2015FinalReport_000.pdf
In comparing 2014 numbers (https://www.env.nm.gov/swb/documents/CY2014StateTotals_000.pdf) to 2015 numbers I’m struck by a few significant increases from 2014 to 2015.
