The planned Los Alamos County Eco Station moved one step closer to becoming a reality Tuesday night during the County Council meeting in White Rock.
Environmental Manager Regina Wheeler presented a motion to council suggesting approval for a contract for general services with Salazar Trucking Co., Inc., in Espaola. Councilor Fran Berting moved to approve the motion, which was seconded by Councilor Jim West.
After a vote, the motion passed 5-0.
The contract between the two entities would allow Salazar Trucking to provide transportation for solid waste and contract for general services, with Waste Management of New Mexico for solid waste disposal services in a form acceptable to the county attorney.
According to county documents, the Eco Station is scheduled to open in January of next year. Approximately 22,000 tons per year of waste will be hauled from that facility to a regional landfill for disposal.
Proposals for solid waste transportation and disposal services were solicited in July.
Proposals were evaluated on the basis of the combined cost for transportation and disposal or “system cost.” Waste Management, Inc. provided the lowest system cost proposal for disposal services at their two regional facilities, Valencia County Regional Landfill and the Rio Rancho Landfill.
