33% Team: Reaching 33% by 2012

The national recycling rate is 32.5% (EPA, 2006). Here in New Mexico we are at 14.6% as of 2009 (NMED, 2010). The NMRC has chosen a goal of reaching a 33% recycling rate by 2012 in order to catch up with the rest of our nation. We need your help to accomplish this.

NMRC is encouraging individuals, communities, businesses and organizations to make the 33% by 2012 commitment.
