THE PUEBLO OF SANTA ANA, N.M.—The Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort & Spa, located on the Pueblo of Santa Ana between Santa Fe and Albuquerque in New Mexico, has been named the Organics Recycler of the Year by the New Mexico Recycling Coalition. The award recognizes individuals, business, and communities that work to reduce waste and support recycling and composting in New Mexico.
The resort was named the Organics Recycler of the Year for its green and eco-friendly initiatives including its green team, a group of associates dedicated to making environmentally conscious decisions for the resort. The green team works to preserve, protect, and restore the natural environment of New Mexico and the Pueblo of Santa Ana through recycling, composting, and energy conservation.
The resort has nearly 20 carts on hand in its kitchen to collect food products, wine corks, coffee filters, and more to be recycled or used as compost. In addition, compost bins are located throughout the property for use in its greenhouse and landscaping.
“We strive to help the environment and conserve energy by encouraging our guests to be environmentally conscious, provide recycling bins, offer options for linen changes, and more,” said Troy Wood, director of sales and marketing at the Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort & Spa.
“We are very excited to be recognized by the New Mexico Recycling Coalition for our green initiatives and the projects put in place by our ‘green team’ to ensure that we are doing our part to protect the environment.”
In addition, the Hyatt Regency Tamaya offers meeting planners the option to “Meet and Be Green,” a program that encourages guests and planners to make 10 green choices for their meetings. Groups participating in the Meet and be Green program at the Hyatt Regency Tamaya before December 31, 2012 will be eligible for a 3 percent rebate on qualifying charges on the master bill.
