Secretary Ron Curry of the New Mexico Environment Department, Matt Miller from Rep. Tom Udall’s office and members from the Environmental Sustainability Board, county councilors, the Secretary of the Environment, Mineral and Natural Resources Department, in addition to the New Mexico Department of Finance, Los Alamos National Laboratory, members of the Solid Waste Board, a handful of Los Alamos residents and representatives from Waste Management of New Mexico all gathered at the new Eco Station to celebrate the ribbon cutting.

Curry expressed his pride in the fact that this innovative facility was placed in Los Alamos County.
