The City of El Paso Environmental Services Department (ESD) now repairs broken garbage or recycling bin lids at any of the City’s Citizen Collection Stations (CCS) for free.
The new service allows residents to take in their garbage or trash containers that have broken lids to any CCS to have it fixed that same day without having to call 3-1-1 and wait seven to 10 business days to have it repaired.
The City’s five Citizen Collection Stations are open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. The locations are as follows:
- Northeast – 4501 Hondo Pass
- Central – 2492 Harrison
- Westside – 121 Atlantic
- Eastside – 1034 Pendale
- Far Eastside – 3510 Confederate
Citizen Collection Stations allow residents to take trash, household hazardous waste, and bulky items to any drop-off location. The sites also function as additional places for recyclables, to complement the city’s curbside recycling program.
Residents who need to repair a damaged garbage or recycling bin can continue to call 3-1-1 to have it repaired free of charge.
