Landfill improvements


Construction is underway for a new, 14-acre cell at Corralitos Regional Landfill. Installation of the high-density polyethylene liner is complete, topped with two feet of sand. The $4.5 million cell is the landfill’s fourth. The third cell was completed in 2013. Each day, approximately 250,000 residents and businesses in Las Cruces and Doña Ana County produce more than 500 tons of solid waste. Approximately 5 percent is diverted as recyclable material, but the rest is buried. Corralitos Regional Landfill is on a 600-acre parcel located along I-10, 15 miles west of Las Cruces. It is owned and operated by the South Central Solid Waste Authority, which can be reached at (575) 528-3800 or visit www.SCSWA.net.
