Mesa County Solid Waste Management Campus Adjusts Public Hours

Effective Wednesday, March 25, 2020, the Mesa County Solid Waste Management Campus will make the following changes to the services offered:

The Hazardous Waste Collection Facility hours have been reduced, and the Reuse Program will be suspended until further notice. The facility is open for residential drop-off on Saturdays only from 8 a.m. to 4:15 p.m.  The facility will continue to take appointments for businesses that are Very Small Quantity Generators (VSQGs). As a reminder, e-waste cannot be disposed of in the landfill. However, companies such as Waste Management and CORRecycling accept e-waste.

The Organic Materials Composting Facility hours have been reduced. The facility is open for residential drop-off on Saturdays only from 8 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. Businesses may bring green waste to the landfill for free. Bulk purchases of Mesa Magic Compost can be made at the landfill. Bagged Mesa Magic Compost is available at Chelsea’s Nursery, Bookcliff Gardens, Valley Grown Nursery, Mt. Garfield Greenhouse, Orchard Mesa True Value, Peach Tree True Value, Fruita True Value, the Fruita Co-Op, and the Palisade Co-Op. Many of these businesses are offering drive-through and curbside sales.

The Mesa County Landfill and transfer stations will remain open to the public. However, it is strongly recommended that residents limit their visits and utilize commercial waste haulers whenever possible.

All Solid Waste Management Campus tours have been suspended. If you have a tour scheduled before April 30, please call 970-241-6846 to reschedule.

The Mesa County Solid Waste Management team is actively following the advice of our public health officials, and we will respond to escalated situations as needed. Hours and services can change at any time.
