In partnership with EverGreen ZeroWaste, Mesa County Solid Waste Management presents a comprehensive, web and app-based recycling guide for Mesa County residents. Simply click Zero Waste Guide and you will be redirected to the recycle guide where you can enter the item you are looking to dispose of and you will be given a list of ideas and resources to keep that material out of the landfill. The guide can also be downloaded to your Apple or Google Play device. Download the Love Zero Waste app today!


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

Mattress Recycling begins July, 2021 with Spring Back Colorado.

Learn about what happens to your mattress after you leave it with us at the landfill!
