Grant County has the following drop-off locations for all your recycling except glass:
  • Grant County Admin Bldg 1400 Hwy 180 E.
  • Tyrone
  • Pinos Altos behind the Buckhorn
  • Bayard City Maintenance Yard
  • Snell Middle School, Bayard
  • Tri-City landfill
  • Mimbres Transfer Station
  • Gila Transfer Station
  • Main Landfill 318 Ridge Road (also accepts glass)
The decorated roll-off containers were painted by kids at various schools around Grant County several years ago. They are labeled with names of recyclable items by the openings but now with single stream you can put anything in any opening. The openings are small to discourage people from putting bags of trash in the bins.

If you drop off glass at the landfill there is a special bin just for glass. Please do not put plastic or paper in this bin. The glass is crushed and used by Grant County for road construction.

For questions or problems call 388-8051.
