Bernalillo County and the Illegal Dumping Partnership Clean Up at Rio Bravo and Coors

Bernalillo County and Illegal Dumping Partnership members came together on Tuesday, April 27 to address an on-going dumping area at the corner of Rio Bravo and Coors Blvd., which has also become a homeless campsite.

There were over 20 volunteers that came together to clean the site, over a period of four hours, to support this initiative.  

“We would like to give a special thanks to staff from BernCo Planning and Development Services, BernCo Land Management, BernCo Sherriff’s’ Department, City of Albuquerque Solid Waste Department and City of Albuquerque Family and Community Services for their hard work to make this cleanup  happen,” said Illegal Dumping Partnership Chair Lucas Tafoya. “This is an important collaboration which aims to promote pride in a clean and healthy community.”

The Illegal Dumping Partnership (IDP) is a multi-agency task force founded to help combat illegal dumping throughout Bernalillo County. The partners include Bernalillo County, City of Albuquerque, Albuquerque/Bernalillo County Water Utility Authority, New Mexico Environment Department, Middle Rio Grande Conservancy District, Albuquerque Metropolitan Arroyo Flood Control Authority, Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office, Albuquerque Police Department, Albuquerque Public Schools, Public Service Company of New Mexico, New Mexico Department of Transportation, Mid-Region Council of Governments, New Mexico United Soccer and Central New Mexico Community College.

The partners of the Illegal Dumping Partnership clean up more than 1,250 tons of junk and rubbish from public spaces on an annual basis. Materials typically include construction and demolition waste, abandoned automobiles, auto parts and scrap tires, appliances, furniture, yard waste and household trash.
