Environmental Services is continually looking for ways to effectively and economically improve the quality of life in El Paso.
- Environmental Services has just made it more convenient for customers to pay for disposal of their waste at the Clint landfill. Effective August 1, 2007, the landfill now accepts VISA or MASTERCARD debit and credit cards.
- In the continued efforts to keep the landfill safe and environmentally friendly, Environmental Services has installed a radiation detector to protect its workers, users, and the surrounding communities from any radiation contaminated waste from being disposed of at the landfill.
- As part of the agreement with Las Colonias subdivision, Environmental Services provided free curbside pick-up on Saturday, July 21, 2007 for their neighbors. A total of 21.3 tons of garbage and bulky items were picked up and disposed of properly.
- Environmental Services has submitted a permit modification to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for the construction of a Leachate Evaporation Pond. Leachate is defined as a liquid (mostly rainwater) that percolates through the buried trash and picks up any organic or inorganic substances in its path. The construction of the leachate evaporation pond will be a significant savings for the City of El Paso. Environmental Services will not have to pay to haul the leachate to a Wastewater Treatment Plant or perform chemical analysis tests. Environmental Services will also not have to pay registration fees, disposal and truck maintenance costs.
