    Mission Statement

    To recognize, provide and manage quality, professional and fiscally responsible solid waste services through teamwork. To enhance the quality of life and health of the citizens of the City of Grand Junction, today and in the future.


    Since 1996, the City of Grand Junction Solid Waste Department has provided automated refuse collection to all residential customers of less than eight units, within city limits. Commercial refuse collection is also available. In providing commercial service, we compete with the private sector. The City's Solid Waste Department is a utility enterprise, funded with a minimum fund balance of 15% of annual operating expenses. Rates and rate changes are established by City Resolution. The fund's existence is to provide quality refuse collection to the citizens of the community at a fair price. Curbside recycling, baling and marketing of recyclables is also available. This service is provided through a contract with Curbside Recycling Indefinitely (GJCRI).
