Thanks to the Safety First Fund, approved by local voters in 2014, these services are free to Summit County residents and property owners. Please bring proof of residency with you.

Recycling & Composting


The SCRAP has a vibrant recycling division and a composting facility on site that produces Class I, STA-certified compost products for landscaping, gardening and many commercial applications.

Mission Statement


Summit County government manages the SCRAP as a publicly owned and operated solid waste management system for the discard, recycling, and reuse of municipal solid waste. SCRAP operates primarily as a fee-based enterprise fund, with some special-waste services supported by the Safety First Fund mill levy to protect local water quality.

Our mission is to provide accessible discard and recycle options for our community in order to maintain a clean, healthy, aesthetically pleasing mountain environment.
