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.
