Raton Regional Recycling Hub Facility Is Currently Closed Until The New Location On Hereford Is Up And Running. 

In 2012, Raton opened the Raton Regional Recycling Hub Facility (RRRHF). The RRRHF will accept recyclable materials from Raton citizens. Under a grant from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Program, Raton has acquired a baler to prepare materials collected from throughout Northeast New Mexico.

Hours of Operation

Hours of operation are currently limited to the first Saturday of the month from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., second and fourth Wednesday of the month from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., and on an as needed basis for large loads of materials (call 575-445-9551). Check back for information on additional hours. We are working on acquiring collection trailers, which are expected to be spread around the area and be available for daily deposits of materials.


The goal of the RRRHF is to divert recyclable materials away from the municipal and regional landfills. Additionally, materials will be made available to supply regional and national industries utilizing recyclable resources.
