The Moab Landfill is a Class IVb permitted facility limited to receive residential and commercial construction/demolition (C&D) debris, green/yard waste, and other materials listed below. Materials that meet this criteria includes bricks, concrete, asphalt, rocks, roofing shingles (non-asbestos), tree roots, sheet rock, remodeling or building repairs, pavement/house/commercial building demolition (non-asbestos), tree limbs, grass clippings, leaves, weeds, garden waste. Tires can be accepted for recycling, not burial and disposal. Canyonlands Solid Waste Authority contracts with certified vendors to have tires sent offsite for energy recovery, recycling, and repurposing.

The Moab Landfill also accepts scrap steel/metal/aluminum, metal appliances (excluding freon-containing appliances such as air conditioning units and refrigerators), clean fill dirt, and bulky waste items such as furniture as part of our Bulky Waste Diversion Program. These items are re-routed to our Klondike Landfill facility to conserve the limited available airspace at Moab Landfill. The 2024 Moab Landfill Fee Schedule is located here.

  • Cardboard and Other Recyclables (non-construction glass, mixed paper, aluminum/steel cans, and plastics): These items can be brought to either the Community Recycle Center (1000 Sand Flats Road) or the Canyonlands Transfer Station (2295 Hwy 191) during regular hours of operation.
