There are designated areas at the landfill for household hazardous waste and construction waste.  When there is enough hazardous waste, it will be delivered to the Household Hazardous Waste Depot in Espanola for proper disposal.  There are separate areas for cement based materials, lumber, asphalt shingles, metals, and fiberglass insulation (which must be double bagged) before disposing at the landfill.  If any building materials can be re-used, it is recommended that they be placed in a separate area at the landfill.  Interested persons can  collect any reusable construction materials that are put aside.
