As you’ll see from the list below, there are plenty of transfer stations, landfills, and dumps around New Mexico meaning there’s likely one near you. The state disposes of around 2 million tonnes of solid waste every year, with less than 20% of that being diverted away from landfills. And even though there are plenty of initiatives to try and increase the recycling rates, landfills and dumps will still be around for many years to come.
Despite some landfills shutting their doors, you’ll still find dumps all around the state including in areas such as Sante Fe, Carlsbad, Los Lunas, Socorro, Las Cruces, Albuquerque, and many more.
