History of the Community Recycle Center

The recycling center was created in 1991 by a non-profit group known as Canyonlands Community Recycling. Their hard work and dedication to the environment has made recycling a household word in Moab. In July of 2010, Canyonlands Community Recycling transferred the management and operation of the CRC to the Solid Waste Special Service District #1 (d/b/a Canyonlands Solid Waste Authority) so that they could pursue the goal of furthering education and recycling in the community. Canyonlands Community Recycling now functions under the non-profit organization known as the Resiliency Hub.

Canyonlands Solid Waste Authority (CSWA) is committed to continuing, promoting, and expanding recycling in Grand County and northern San Juan County. At the Community Recycle Center, CSWA accepts a variety of recycling products and processes them for shipping to domestic markets/brokers and processing plants, where available. Residents may drop off recyclables for free, whereas commercial entities are charged a fee to offset the recycling costs. Source-separated products are stored in a staging area until enough is accumulated for processing into bales. A pricing and shipping contract is then negotiated. A primary goal of the District is to ensure that the CRC is financially supported as much as possible by the sale of products.

A key District goal is to encourage the saving of resources by increasing the materials diverted from the waste stream.
