TRANSFER STATION SCHEDULES ALTERED FOR FATHER'S DAY

TRANSFER STATION SCHEDULES ALTERED FOR FATHER'S DAY

The county’s solid-waste convenience stations in Anthony, La Mesa, Hill, Butterfield, Mesquite, La Union, Hatch and Garfield will be closed all day Sunday, June 20, 2004. Most will resume normal operations Monday, June 21, 2004. The only exceptions will be the stations in La Union and Garfield, which will re-open Friday, June 25 at 9:30 a.m.

Historic usage patterns show very low utilization of the convenience stations on both Mother's Day and Father's Day each year. Closing the stations on these days saves money in the county's Environmental Services Department budget.

For more information, call county Public Information Director Jess Williams at (505) 647-7229. Residents calling from outside the Las Cruces area may call toll-free at 1-877-827-7200 and request extension 7229.
