Developing a San Luis Valley Regional Waste Diversion Plan
2016-2017 Project

Good news! SLVEC has received a Recycling Resources Economic Opportunity (RREO) grant to develop a Regional Solid Waste Management and Recycling Plan for the SLV. This is to compliment a grant received by Conejos Clean Water (CCW), which is a two year grant for developing a similar plan.


Solid Waste Management is morphing from illegal dumping emphasis to developing a possible hub and spoke network for solid waste and recycling to reduce the amount of waste going to the landfill.


Removing recyclables and compost will reduce the amount of emissions that cause Greenhouse Gasses (GHG), which contribute to climate change, as well as satisfy the requirements set forth by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) regarding solid waste and recycling on the State level.
