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.

To start your search for a dump near you, scroll through the list below or enter your location into the map to find the nearest one.

Most dumps around New Mexico will accept common items such as car parts, tires, household goods, furniture, yard waste, and more. If you have something that could be potentially toxic or hazardous, the worst thing you can do for the environment is dump it illegally. So make sure to give them a quick call to see if they can process the waste safely.

Similar to many of the dumps in California, a lot of the dumps and landfill sites in New Mexico are operated by the local counties. Tipping fees are generally cheaper here compared to dumping at a privately-owned site.
