Our Mission Statement:
"Our mission is to manage waste in Grand County to ensure public health, safety and welfare in a manner that promises zero waste!"
The Solid Waste Special Service District #1 is located at 1000 East Sand Flats Road in Moab, Utah 84532. Contact information: Phone (435) 259-3867, Fax (435) 259-1794, e-mail: mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org. The District owns and operates two landfills and the Community Recycle Center. Moab Landfill is a permitted Class IV landfill and only accepts construction/demolition and yard waste. The Klondike Landfill is a permitted Class I landfill for municipal waste and is not open to the general public. The Community Recycle Center is open to the public for dropping off their recyclables.
The Solid Waste District is governed by a Control Board consisting of five members of the county. One position is a representative of the City of Moab, one position is a representative of Grand County, one position is a representative of the Town of Castle Valley, and the other two positions are "at large". The Control Board meets the second Thursday of every month at the district office at 4:00pm and the meetings are open to the general public. At the January meeting we welcomed the new Grand County representative, Mary McGann. At the January meeting, the board elected new officers to serve for the next two years. Greg Stucki, the Moab City representative, will be the Chairman. Kevin Fitzgerald, one of the at-large members, will serve as the Vice-Chair. Pam Hackley, the other at-large members, will remain as the Treasurer. The representative for Castle Valley is Bob Greenberg who has served with us before and has missed us so much that he has returned to help the District achieve its goals. Diane Ackerman is learning from Bob Greenberg so that when he retires, she will be ready to take his lead. These fine folks donate their time to oversee the landfill and recycling operations because they truely care about our beautiful home.
