At North Central Solid Waste Authority, we are committed to putting people first. The health and safety of our employees, customers and communities is our highest priority.

North Central Solid Waste Authority is taking precautionary steps in response to the latest information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and federal, state and local agencies to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Based on the available information, as of tomorrow Wednesday, March 18, 2020 and until further notice, we will be minimizing in-person cash payments and are encouraging our customers to make payments to the Authority online, or via US Mail.  If necessary customers may utilize the Drop Box located at NCSWA offices but we encourage customers to utilize payment methods that limit their travel outside of the home.  North Central Solid Waste Authority is actively following the CDC’s guidelines to keep our employees safe. We appreciate your patience as we prepare our employees and facilities across Rio Arriba County and surrounding areas to continue providing the services our customers need and expect.

All transfer station and collection centers will continue to operate until further notice.

All residential and commercial trash routes will still be picked up until further notice.

Any service changes will be communicated via our website and Facebook.

The Board of Directors meeting scheduled for March 18, 2020 has been postponed until further notice.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. Stay Safe Everyone!
