SFSWMA is committed to be an innovative, responsive, and integrated solid waste organization that provides a safe, cost-efficient and environmentally-sound management of solid waste generated for its customers in Santa Fe County while educating the public in the importance of waste diversion programs including waste reduction, recycling, composting, and special waste.
The Caja Del Rio Landfill continues to fill its latest solid waste disposal cell, Cell 6B. More Info
Though Cell 5B will be used for waste disposal activities into 2020, both the design and construction of Cell 6B was completed in 2019. Disposal activities commenced in Cell 6B in March 2020. No blasting was performed in conjunction with the construction activities. This timeline allowed for necessary approvals to be in place prior to use of Cell 6B by the Agency for disposal activities. It is anticipated that Cell 6B will last approximately 5-7 years before the Agency builds out the vertical expansion approved in the 2015 New Mexico Environment Department Solid Waste Bureau operations permit. The total life of the vertical expansion is approximately 10 years. Cells 7 & 8 are currently being excavated to design based grades for cover soil used by the disposal operation.
