It is important that only household trash is thrown away in the dumpsters. If you have large items or you are just cleaning up around the yard, please stop by Hall and pick up the transfer station key to properly dispose of these items. Thank you!
IMPROPER ASH DISPOSAL A fireplace or wood stove with a dancing fire lends a cozy feeling to any home, especially on a cool, blustery day. Fireplaces, wood stoves, bar-b-ques and other wood-burning equipment can provide efficient heat, cooking mediums and aesthetics. Unfortunately, all too often improper disposal of ashes from these devices is the cause of wild fires, as well as fires in dumpsters and trash cans. Piles of ashes can hold enough heat to start a fire for several days and even longer after any flames are seen if not properly extinguished. Before disposing of ashes, follow these steps: 1. Place them in a metal container, or on bare earth, never in paper or plastic bags or cardboard boxes. (We know this sounds obvious, but it happens all the time.) 2. Wet the ashes and stir as you add more water to make sure they are dead cold! 3. Do not throw cigarettes out of the car windows. A carelessly discarded cigarette or match can land in dry organic material resulting in a fire. 4. Make certain all smoking materials are cold before disposing. Leave ashtrays out overnight before emptying into a metal container.

Recycling Committee needs members! This committee meets once a month.
The goal of this committee is to educate the community through a series of education and promotional programs on the benefits of recycling. The goal of this program is to reduce the solid waste of the Village which is taken to the Wagon Mound landfill by at 25-50%.
If you are interested in joining this committee please contact Village Hall at 575 376-2232. All loads of the recycled material are taken to the Angel fire recycling center and are tracked by type and quantity so we can measure the impact of this program.
