"Our mission is to manage waste in Grand County to ensure public health, safety and welfare in a manner that promises zero waste!"
In 1992, resolutions were passed by both the Grand County Council and Moab City Council because they determined that the public health, convenience and necessity required the creation of the Solid Waste Special Service District for the purpose of constructing, maintaining and operating a sanitary landfill facility for the disposal of solid waste generated by the residents and businesses in Grand County.
Locations: The office for the Solid Waste Special Service District #1 (SWSSD1) is located at 1000 East Sand Flats Road in Moab, Utah. The District owns and operates two landfills, the Community Recycle Center (CRC), and in 2016 received a permit to develop a composting program. The Klondike Landfill located north of the Canyonlands Airport is a Class I landfill permitted to take municipal solid waste, restaurant grease, special wastes, and biosolids. It is closed to the general public. The Moab Landfill located about a mile to the east sandwiched between Sand Flats Road and Potato Salad Road is a Class IVb landfill permitted to take construction/demolition material and yard waste. Tires are collected there to send offsite for recycling. The CRC is located next to the District office at 1000 East Sand Flats Road. A compost demonstration pilot project is being developed on top of the old Moab landfill which is adjacent to the current Moab Class IVb landfill operations.
Note facilities are closed on federal and state holidays.
