About San Luis Valley Regional Solid Waste Authority
The San Luis Valley Regional Solid Waste Authority (SLVRSWA) was established in April of 1993 with an intergovernmental agreement between Alamosa County and Rio Grande County for funding to start the project. This was the first step in a collaborative effort to resolving the burgeoning problem of solid waste disposal around the San Luis Valley. The facility is set up to collect solid waste from all six counties which must pay a tipping fee at the gate as the facility is totally self-funded through these fees. The facility which is located in Rio Grande County is not operated under Rio Grande County but operated solely as its own authority.
The facility is one of the best run and the cleanest operation in the state of Colorado for its size. There is a high standard used to maintain the operations along with meeting the applicable compliance standards and regulations that are required. The facility continues to work with the San Luis Valley Counties to evaluate and maintain the level of service being provided to customers. Currently the facility is receiving waste from areas that include six counties. The facility also continues to keep the financial reserve positive and to h...ave a specific amount set aside for the final closure of the facility which is the financial assurance as required. The acreage owned was designed and engineered to operate a 59 year term at the current operation location.
