Demolition/ Fire/ Special Waste

The San Luis Valley Regional Solid Waste Authority accepts demolition, friable and non-friable asbestos waste, fire debris and contaminated soil from the six area regional partners it is designed to serve and support; Alamosa, Conejos, Costilla, Mineral, Rio Grande and Saguache counties. Hauling of solid wastes from other counties is discouraged and requires approval of the Landfill Manager. If you have questions contact the landfill office: 719-852-3810.

Before you start a remodel, renovation or demolition a State of Colorado Demolition Permit is required.
