New Fence, New Hours at Foothills Landfill Recycling Yard 2019
Drop off recycling at the Old Foothills Landfill (OFL), 555 S. Sonoma Ranch Blvd., is no longer open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. That’s because of the growing problem of illegal dumping at the recycling yard, including the dumping of old furniture, used motor oil, and bags of trash.
What once was a very convenient eastside drop off site for recyclables and glass bottles and jars is now enclosed with a chain link fence, and hours for recycling drop off are limited to the hours the OFL is open.
The new hours of the recycling drop off at the OFL are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday – Friday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, closed Sunday.
The South Central Solid Waste Authority (SCSWA) manages solid waste and recyclables for residents and businesses throughout Doña Ana County. Questions? Contact the SCSWA at 575/528-3800 or visit www.SCSWA.net.
