ESD: Use Citizen Collection Stations for Spring Cleaning

The City of El Paso Environmental Services Department (ESD) is ready to help residents do some spring cleaning and clear their homes of clutter and unwanted trash by taking advantage of the Citizen Collection Stations.

The Citizen Collection Stations (CCS) are public drop-off sites for trash, household hazardous waste, bulky items, and recyclables. The sites are free to residents and all that is needed is a recent water bill and matching identification. However, no construction or demolition material will be accepted.

In addition, the CCS offer many spring-cleaning items for free, including reusable paint, mulch, and reusable household products.

The collection stations are also equipped with a Community Tool Shed, which allow residents to rent yard tools such as lawnmowers, shovels, and rakes.

There are four CCS:
· Northeast – 4507 Honda Pass
· Central – 2492 Harrison
· Westside – 121 Atlantic
· Eastside – 1034 Pendale

For more information on the Citizen Collections Stations, call the ESD at 311 or visit their website.

Video+Story: ESD’s Recycling Squad Asks the Public to Recycle During March Madness

The Environmental Services Department (ESD) Recycling Squad encourages residents to go green and recycle by turning their blue bins into a hoop and dunking recyclables during March Madness.

Big game gatherings can create a large amount of trash that end up at the Greater El Paso Landfill. The ESD estimates that thousands of aluminum cans, plastic beverage containers and cardboard materials will pass the recycle bin and be thrown in the trash before, during and after the games.

The ESD has created a short public service announcement where the recycling squad shows residents how to recycle correctly.

The ESD Recycling Squad has the following recycling reminders.

  • Before a gathering, set aside separate containers for trash and recycling. Clean aluminum cans, plastic bottles and cardboard packaged products are recyclable.
  • Purchase aluminum canned beverages (glass is recyclable but needs to be taken to one of the City’s Citizen Collection Stations).
  • Serve food on reusable plates that can be washed and used again. A move like this can reduce the amount of trash that may end up in the landfill.
  • Pizza boxes and Styrofoam cups and plates are NOT RECYCLABLE; those belong in the trash.

Research proves that when people see others recycling, they’re more likely to follow that person’s lead. The ESD Recycling Squad encourages everyone to recycle right; not just during March Madness, but year-round.

Video+Story City’s ESD Reminds El Pasoans to Tackle Recycling During Super Bowl Weekend

The City of El Paso Environmental Services Department encourages residents to make a game-time decision to go green and recycle during Super Bowl weekend.

Super Bowl parties can create a supersized amount of trash that is sure to make its way to the Greater El Paso Landfill. Environmental Services estimates that thousands of aluminum cans, plastic beverage containers and cardboard material will pass the recycle bin and be thrown in the trash before, during and after the game.

In an effort to reduce waste, Environmental Services has some suggestions that will minimize the environmental impact that Super Bowl weekend creates.

  • Purchase an energy efficient television, preferably Energy Star rated. Recycle the box it came in and dispose of the old TV or used electronics at any of the City’s Citizen Collection Stations.
  • Before the game, set aside separate containers for trash and recycling. Aluminum cans, plastic bottles and cardboard packaged products are all recyclable. Pizza boxes and Styrofoam cups and plates are NOT RECYCLABLE; those belong in the trash. (Recycle Right El Paso, Public Service Announcement on recycling for the big game can be seen on the City’s YouTube Channel.
  • Purchase aluminum canned beverages; glass is recyclable but needs to be taken to one of the City’s Citizen Collection Stations. Each aluminum can that is recycled saves enough energy to run a television for nearly three hours, that’s roughly the time it takes to watch the Super Bowl.
  • Serve food on reusable plates that can be washed and used again. A move like this can reduce the amount of trash that may end up in the landfill.

The Environmental Services Department encourages everyone to recycle right not just during Super Bowl weekend but year-round. To learn more about recycling visit Recycle Right El Paso.
