New Trash Collection Day Begins on Tuesday

Newmanistas will need to begin a new schedule for putting out their garbage and recycling. Beginning next week, the City will collect trash in this area on Tuesdays instead of Fridays. So, beginning next Monday evening, February 1, trash and recycling should be set out for collection on Tuesday, February 2.

Tammy Fonce-Olivas, the Public Affairs Coordinator for the City of El Paso, sent us this list of procedures to help manage waste:
  • Do place container adjacent to the curb, with the arrow on top of the lid facing towards the street, the night before day of collection after 6:00 p.m., or day of collection by 5:00 a.m.
  • Do bag your waste to prevent spillage
  • Do wash out your container on a regular basis; it’s the responsibility of the customer to keep a clean container
  • Do not place container no more than 3 ft from the curb
  • Do not place anything outside, or on top of container
  • Do not overflow container
  • Do not leave lid open; must be closed at all times
  • Do not place container close to mailbox, underneath or next to a tree, cable, electrical or telephone boxes, or basketball court
  • Do not place container within 3 ft. of a parked vehicle
  • Do not place rocks, dirt, construction debris, or any large heavy metal object in the container
  • Do not leave container out on the street. Container must be stored within your property no later than 7:00 p.m. on the day of collection
  • Do not refill the container, and take it across the street, or to the neighbor’s curb for a second collection
  • Do not stand by the curb waiting for the truck to empty container and then refill for an additional collection
  • Do not remove or switch the container from the assigned address
  • Do not place containers too close to each other, maintain at least 3 ft. distance
  • Do not place hazardous materials such as motor oil, anti-freeze, batteries or chemicals.
Here's a map of the new collection days for the City.
