Rio Rancho students learn the importance of throwing away trash

Santa Fe unwanted guns destroyed in landfill

RIO RANCHO, N.M. (KRQE) – Local elementary school students were able to learn what it really means to throw your trash away.

Students from Rio Rancho Elementary took a field trip to the Rio Rancho landfill where they learned about how waste is processed and filtered.

They also were taught a lesson in the importance of keeping recyclables out of the landfill.

Teachers hope to take many more trips like this in the future. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
