With the recent ribbon cutting of the new Eco Station, Los Alamos residents know it’ll be just a few more weeks before the old county landfill is a distant memory.
The Eco Station is one of the many steps that the Environmental Sustainability Board is taking to make Los Alamos a green community.
With the opening of the Eco Station right around the corner, it’s important for residents to know what sort of policies and procedures the Eco Station employees will be following.
Knowing what to expect and what sort of waste will be accepted will make the transition from landfill to Eco Station smoother for everyone.
The following procedures are outlined in the Los Alamos County Solid Waste Division Eco Station Waste Screening Policy and Procedure documents: The Waste Screening Policy for the Eco Station states that upon entering the scales, the scale operator will ask the transporter what type of waste they are hauling and where it was generated.
The scale operator will then inspect each load using inspection mirrors. Some loads will be randomly selected for a documented waste screening. Should this happen, the scale operator will notify the customer that they’ve been selected and that further instruction will be given once they enter the Eco Station.
