The Klondike Class I Landfill is located on 80 acres approximately five miles north of the Canyonlands Field Airport, west of Highway 191. Planning and construction of the facility began in 1997. Although the material brought to the landfill is majority household trash, the facility is closed to public and can only be accessed by franchised haulers.

Special types of municipal waste such as restaurant grease, wastewater treatment plant biosolids, industrial solid waste, and petroleum contaminated soils are brought by franchised haulers to the site for proper disposal.

Contaminated soils, non-friable asbestos materials, and special wastes require approval from the CSWA office PRIOR to bringing the material to the landfill. Approval will be dependent on the results of laboratory testing, safety data sheets, and/or other information as required for the material type. To request an approval to bring material, generators must complete and submit a special waste profile request with supporting documentation. Go to the Special Wastes Page for more information or contact CSWA personnel at (435) 259-6314.

Although the landfill is not open to the public, tours of the facility can be arranged with the CSWA office. For more information, contact the CSWA Administrative Office at (435) 259-6314.
