Environmental Services Division Mission
Provide exceptional solid waste and sustainability services to create a better community for current and future generations.
The Environmental Services Division provides solid waste and recycling services to Los Alamos County residents. In addition, the Environmental Sustainability Board was formed to provide public input on the County's sustainability efforts.
Material Loading Assistance: The Eco Station offers free mulch, compost, manure, and glass cullet. Assistance with loading these materials into trucks and trailers is available from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily. The Eco Station has a smaller staff on weekends and therefore loading assistance may not be immediately available.
Effective August 1, 2015, a loading fee will be assessed at $3.00 per cubic yard of material; approximately 4 cubic yards fit into our front-end loaders. Methods of payment include cash or check; or County residents may choose to be billed for this service on their monthly utility bill.
Due to high demand please call 662-8163 to check if material and loading assistance are available.
Free Load Policy: Los alamos County residents with weekly curbside collection are allowed 12 free loads per year. Please review our free load policy here Free Load Policy.pdf
