Landfill, Recycling & Transfer Sites

  • Landfill Taos Regional Landfill will be open to the public Monday through Thursday from 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM.  Closed Friday-Sunday. If you have a large load, you need to be there by 2pm
  • Recycling -  Now at the Transfer Stations: card board, mixed paper, aluminum, tires, batteries (including lithium)
  • Transfer Stations - Open from 8am-4pm Tuesday-Saturday Taos area transfer stations are open regular hours and days until they overwhelm us (per the Director).  Only household trash. No brush at the transfer station. Many people are using this time off to clean their yards which is fine, but overwhelming the stations and landfill is not.  If you plan to burn your brush, be sure you have a burn permit.
