    Trash and Recycling Bin Repairs

    Public encouraged to report damaged containers
    Does your city-issued trash or recycling container have a broken lid or missing wheel?

    The City of El Paso Environmental Services Department encourages the public to report damaged containers. The 96-gallon containers are repaired at no charge. Service requests for repairs are usually carried out within one to five weekdays.

    The Department would like to remind the public that each customer is provided with a gray container for trash and a blue container for recyclables. Additional trash bins are available for those customers who would like to have an extra container. However, a $10 reoccurring monthly fee is charged for each additional trash container. Currently, the department does not offer additional recycling containers.

    If a container must be replaced because it cannot be repaired, it is replaced at no charge unless the damage was caused by the customer. A $48 replacement fee is charged in those rare cases where the damage was caused by the customer. Missing containers should be reported to Environmental Services and the El Paso Police Department.

    For more information about repairs or additional containers, visit: or call 621-6700.
