Environmental Services Offers Tips on Disposing Fall Yard Waste

Autumn is in the air and soon leaves will be covering the ground and officials with the Environmental Services Department have options for residents when it comes to cleaning up.

Officials with the Environmental Services Department (ESD) are asking residents to throw yard waste in the gray bins and not the blue recycle bins.

Additionally, ESD is also encouraging residents to utilize any of their five CCS sites this fall season to drop off any extra yard waste.

The Citizen Collection Stations are public drop-off sites for trash, household hazardous waste, bulky items, and recyclables.

These sites are free to residents with a recent El Paso water bill and matching I.D. Residents do not need a water bill to drop off recyclables.

All CCS sites offer many services to the public. Residents can pick up free reusable paint, mulch and reusable household products. They are also equipped with a Community Tool Shed, which allows residents to borrow yard tools such as rakes, shovels, and even lawnmowers for a maximum of five days.

To use the Community Tool Sheds, residents must be 18 years or older and have an I.D.

 

There are five CCS sites conveniently located in El Paso:

  • Far East – 3510 Confederate
  • Eastside – 1034 Pendale
  • Northeast – 4507 Hondo Pass (entrance off Stahala)
  • Central – 2492 Harrison
  • Westside – 121 Atlantic

For more information on Citizen Collection Stations and the services provided, visit the ESD webiste or call 311.
