S-Road Facility Landfill

The S-Road Facility Landfill provides a state-of-the-art, lined and environmentally secure, non-hazardous solid waste disposal site located within the eroded hills of Mancos Shale about 8.5 miles northwest of Mack CO, at the northwestern extent of the Lower Grand Valley in Mesa County.

The S-Road Facility Landfill provides a state-of-the-art, lined and environmentally secure, non-hazardous solid waste disposal site located within the eroded hills of Mancos Shale about 8.5 miles northwest of Mack CO, at the northwestern extent of the Lower Grand Valley in Mesa County.

The new ownership group of S-Road Facility Landfill has invested heavily in improving all aspects of the landfill, including recently installing a high-tech, Geosynthetic Clay Liner system (GCL) in a new disposal cell, which overlies the more than 1,500 feet of low-permeability, naturally occurring Mancos Shale formation.

The first groundwater aquifer below the site is the Entrada Sandstone Aquifer, which is about 2,000 feet below the ground surface, and is a high salt content (saline, or brackish) water.

This high desert area has an annual precipitation of less than 6.5 inches per year. This causes S-Road Facility to be an ideal site for non-hazardous waste disposal.

The US Department of Energy, after extensive investigation, chose a similar site near Crescent Junction, Utah, about 50 airmiles to the west of our S-Road Facility Landfill, as the preferred land disposal site for the redisposal of the large volume of uranium mill tailings from the former uranium ore processing facility near Moab, Utah. That site relies only on the favorable, natural geology (Mancos Shale) without any engineered liner. Thus, the S-Road site exceeds even the DOE site’s environmental security.

The S-Road Facility Landfill is permitted by the State of Colorado and holds a Certificate of Designation from the Mesa County Commission for the 120-acre site. The designated landfill facility meets and exceeds the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Subtitle D Location Standards for a non-hazardous disposal site.

S-Road Facility also recently received authorization to use its new, GCL lined disposal cell from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE), Hazardous Materials and Waste Management Division, pursuant to 6 CCR 1007-2, PART 1, Regulations Pertaining to Solid Waste Sites and Facilities.

The landfill is fully permitted to accept MSW-municipal solid waste from households, commercial businesses, and industrial facilities, Construction & Demolition Debris as well as non-hazardous special wastes & contaminated soils, on a case by case review and approval process. Landfill personnel are MOLO trained and certified to identify and exclude unauthorized wastes.

S-Road Facility Landfill is remotely located in a rural setting where the landfill is bordered by BLM on three-sides, therefore, S-Road Landfill offers a superb, secured and safe choice for your non-hazardous disposal needs.    

The landfill is located at 1962 4 Road, Mack, CO, which is approximately 8.5 road miles from the Mack Exit (11) at I-70 via old US-6, 8-Mile, and 4 Roads (Baxter Pass Road). Mack is about 20 miles northwest of Grand Junction via Interstate 70.

COVID-19   –  Service Guidelines for Trash and Recycle Collections

To our valued customers, as we continue to provide essential waste and recycle collection services to our community we would ask that you please follow these simple, but important guidelines.

* Please bag all trash, we will not collect any loose trash.

* Place all trash in our dedicated Trash Cart or your Customer Provided Trash Can, this helps our route personnel by limiting the amount of trash/waste they come into contact with, bagged and containerized waste drastically reduces our contact and helps reduce exposure to everyone, including you.

* Pay extra attention to what you place in your Recycle Cart for collection. Our route drivers screen and clean our recyclables as they perform collection services and must pull out contamination items by hand, we would like to minimize their exposure of handling loose materials as much as possible.

* Minimize close contact with our route personnel and please maintain a 6′ safe distance for your own protection as well as ours.

We appreciate your cooperation and understanding, we will work diligently to continue with our important collection services, but we need everyone’s help in keeping our employees safe and healthy during these unknown times.

Thank you,

Dan & Bonnie Kirkpatrick
