"That New Car Smell"

Environmental Services added 10 new automated side loaders to their fleet, in anticipation of the upcoming implementation of El Paso's recycling program. These behemoths are Sterling chassis with McNeilus 31 cubic yard packer bodies.

Since the inception of automation in 1997, the then Solid Waste Management Department has built a fleet of 64 units. Recycling is not the only function of the department, but the older automated units will continue to carry the load.

As an additional 100 tires rotate across our neighborhoods, the Department of Environmental Services continues to roll with the future of recycling in sight.
