Recycling at Balloon Fiesta

Albuquerque is known internationally for our annual Balloon Fiesta. During this world renowned event more than 750,000 visitors converge on our great city. Every year for The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, Keep Albuquerque Beautiful partners with local youth groups to encourage the thousands of people that attend to recycle. By placing recycle bins for both the public as well as the vendors, we hope to give people the opportunity to be conscious of the decisions they make while enjoying the fiesta.
