County to host second regional stakeholder meeting on waste diversion

Contact: Winn Cowman, Souder, Miller & Associates, winn.cowman@soudermiller.com

Jan. 5, 2018 – Eagle County Solid Waste & Recycling will host a stakeholder work session meeting from 10:30 a.m. to noon on Jan. 10 to discuss options for waste management, recycling and waste diversion in northwest Colorado. The meeting will take place at the Meeker Library, located at 490 Main Street in Meeker.

The work session is the second in a series of four regional community stakeholder gatherings intended to optimize waste diversion and recycling efforts in Eagle, Garfield, Rio Blanco, Moffat and Routt counties.

Souder Miller & Associates was hired on behalf of Solid Waste & Recycling to conduct the Northwest Colorado Regional Waste Diversion Study and prepare a report on its findings. The study includes four waste composition audits, four stakeholder meetings, a stakeholder survey, gap analysis and a final report. The initial findings from the waste composition audits and waste survey will be shared at the Jan. 10 meeting.

Eagle County Solid Waste & Recycling was awarded a grant from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) to fund the study. The grant is part of CDPHE’s Recycling Resources Economic Opportunity program.
