Ceremony slated for Eco Station opening Nov. 19

-A A +A

Since its inception, the Environmental Sustainability Board has met a handful of times to discuss how to go about getting Los Alamos to be more environmentally conscious and how to get residents to go green.

One of the ideas the Board has moved forward with is the Eco Station, and as a result of the Board’s efforts, the Eco Station will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony on Nov. 19 from 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

Snacks will be served at the ceremony and the public is invited to attend.

Starting today, in preparation for the opening of the Eco Station, people will be routed through the new scale entrance of the Eco Station to get to the landfill.

“We need to keep filling the landfill to the final grades of the closure design, so waste will go into the landfill until the final elevations are met,” Environmental Services Manager Regina Wheeler said.

Wheeler said that the county would accept trash in the transfer station on Dec. 15, after completing the final permit inspection with the New Mexico Environment Department.

Construction of the landfill cover and final closure is expected to begin next year.

The project will consist mainly of installing a three-foot thick soil cover all over the landfill.
