Hazardous Waste



As the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation continues to unfold, the health and safety of our employees, our customers, and the community we serve is our highest priority.

The Mesa County Landfill is OPEN to the public during the PROTECT-OUR-NEIGHBORS phase of re-opening Colorado; however, residents are encouraged to utilize their commercial waste hauler and only visit the landfill when absolutely necessary.

The Hazardous Waste Collection Facility and the Organic Materials Composting Facility are OPEN with reduced hours. Both Facilities are open Thursday-Saturday, 8AM-4:15PM.

The Mesa County Solid Waste Management team is actively following the advice of our public health officials and industry experts. We will respond to escalated situations as needed.
We wish you good health and safety as we all work through this together. 


To limit overtime costs, ALL customers must be unloaded/loaded by our closing time.
