Santa Fe's progress toward a sustainable future utilizing smart technology is featured in this video by Amazon Web Services as part of their new "Climate Next" docu-series. The short video highlights the partnership between the Environmental Services Division and their technology partner, Rubicon, as they've worked to redesign Santa Fe's waste and recycling operations to be more efficient, provide better customer service, and reduce carbon emissions – moving the city one step closer to carbon neutrality by 2040. Stay tuned for more in 2022!
City Hosting DOH Vaccine Days
Public health officials advise that full vaccination, including booster shots, is a defense against severe illness.

On the remaining Thursdays in December – Dec. 23, and Dec. 30 – people age 18 and older are invited to receive Moderna vaccinations at the Midtown Public Safety Building.
