There's a great way to recycle your Plastic bags. It's the "Bags to Benches" program initiated by the City of Las Cruces Parks & Recreation Department. For every 30,000 plastic bags collected, the program will earn one new park bench for our community!

Don't Throw Away the plastic. Recycle it by taking it to one of the gathering receptacles at the following drop-o locations:

–​ City Hall, 700 N. Main St.
–​ Meerscheidt Recreation Center, 1600 E. Hadley Ave.
–​ Regional Aquatic Center, 1401 E. Hadley Ave.
–​ Branigan Library, 200 E. Picacho Ave.
