A trip to the Mesa County Landfill can be intimidating for someone who has never been there but it doesn't have to be.

The fact is, dropping a load off at the landfill is a pretty easy and painless process - as long as you have an idea of what to expect. Those of us who have made our share of landfill trips over the years think nothing of making a Saturday morning run to the dump. But, for others who have never done it, uncertainty, apprehension, and fear of the unknown may be keeping them away and causing undue anxiety.

For these poor souls who have never experienced the wonders of the Mesa County Landfill, and others who may like to just come along for the ride, I have a brief overview of things you should know before you take a load of trash, garbage, or recyclables to the landfill. This will also help you to know what to do once you get there and give you confidence about using this much-needed and valuable resource in Mesa County.
