Latest News

As part of the ACES program through the Doña Ana County Animal Control and Codes Department, the Doña Ana County Illegal Dumping Partnership (IDP) partners with our staff to educate property owners throughout the County.

From July 2017 through June 2018, there were six ACES project days and six Dumpster Days in various neighborhoods and communities. Cleanups were held in Chaparral, the East Mesa of Las Cruces, Rincon, Anthony, Tortugas, and Bamert.

Throughout the year, the staff worked a total of 670 hours on ACES project days and 144 hours on Dumpster Days, for a total of 814 hours, resulting in the eradication of 43.74 tons of trash, litter and garbage, including tires.

These educational outreach projects and cleanups are part of a larger effort to encourage community involvement in keeping Doña Ana County litter free and preserving its natural beauty.

The IDP encourages community members to get involved and coordinate community cleanups in your area. Supplies are available at no charge. For information on how you can lead a cleanup in your community, please contact our office at 525-8846.
