Residential Report Missed Pickup

Our commitment to the citizens of Alamogordo is to ensure that Southwest Disposal Corp provide safe service for their garbage. Their drivers will not pick up garbage containers that are overfilled, too close to citizen’s property (vehicles, mailboxes, etc.), or contaminated with paint or other household chemical waste. However, it’s possible that their driver overlooked your garbage container, or is running behind the usual schedule. If your garbage has not been serviced please call Southwest Disposal Corp at 575-434-1109, or visit their website at
