EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) — The County and City are partnering to help clean up El Paso.

The County of El Paso’s Public Works Department and the City of El Paso’s Environmental Services Department are joining forces to provide County residents the opportunity to dispose of excess waste.

The County Waste Agreement will allow residents given a token by the County to use two drop-off locations operated by the Environmental Services Department to dispose of waste at no extra cost. 

To obtain a token, County residents must make a request to the County’s Public Works Department to use the approved drop-off locations. Residents without a token will not be able to use the sites.

The approved drop-off locations are at the Environmental Services Department’s Citizen Collection Station located at 121 Atlantic in west El Paso, and the Greater El Paso Landfill located at 2600 Darrington in far east El Paso.

To request a token to be sent by mail, residents may call 915-855-9664.
