The Solid Waste Department manages the city's transfer station. The City of Artesia does not maintain an operational landfill. Collected refuse is transferred out of the city to a landfill in Carlsbad. The Transfer Station is open to residents living inside the City Limits, as well as, the adjacent County Areas.
Residents may dispose of their household debris at no charge. You must have a business account to dispose of commercial debris. There is a nominal fee for disposal of commercial debris. To set up a commercial account, please contact the Utility Billing Office at City Hall, 511 W Texas Avenue or by calling 575-746-2122.
