The Camino Real Landfill (CRLF) is an existing solid waste facility operating in compliance with its current permits and the New Mexico Environment Department (NMED) Solid Waste Rules. Camino Real Environmental Center, Inc. (CREC) is seeking a permit modification for the CRLF to modify the existing permitted landfill configuration and to renew the current permit.
The overall concept of the landfill modification is to optimize the use of the planned footprint without significantly changing the visible configuration of the site to surrounding communities. The permit renewal will allow the continuous operation of the community resource.
Key site changes listed below.
