Solid Waste Special Service District #1
”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 and Operating Hours
Facilities are closed on federal and state holidays. Landfills will close if wind speeds exceed 30 mph (gusty winds).

Governance and Staffing
The District is a Special Service District within the State of Utah that is governed by a five person Administrative Control Board consisting of representatives from the Grand County Council, Moab City Council, Castle Valley Council, and two at-large members. The board meets on the second Thursday of every month. If there is no business to be conducted, the board typically does not hold a meeting in July. Meetings are currently being held in the Board Room at the Hyatt Place Moab, 890 N Main Street, Moab, Utah 84532, beginning at 4:00 pm. The daily operations are managed by a District Manager with assistance from an Administrative Assistant and a Facilities Supervisor/Foreman.
