Solid Waste Disposal - Eagle County owns and operates the landfill through its Public Works Department.  Landfill staff is comprised of nine individuals who oversee the entire operation.  The landfill provides a solid waste facility for Eagle County residents and an environmentally safe containment area for all acceptable refuse while insuring compliance with all federal, state, and county regulations.

Household Hazardous Waste & CESQG Facility
- The primary goal of the Eagle County Household Hazardous Waste Program is to provide the residents of the County with a safe, convenient, and free method of disposal for their household hazardous waste. This will have the benefit of preventing hazardous materials from entering the landfill.  It will also help to lessen contamination in surface and ground water, and protect sanitation workers, children, and animals from the dangers of improper disposal of household hazardous waste. The goal of the Eagle County ‘Conditionally Exempt Small Quantity Generator Program’ will be to assist local businesses in disposing of their hazardous wastes in a safer, timely, and more economical manner.  This will also have the benefit of reducing or eliminating improper disposal of CESQG waste in the Eagle County landfill.
