”Our mission is to manage waste in Grand County to ensure public health, safety, and welfare in a manner that promotes zero waste!”
In 1993, 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.
