The Southern Ute Utilities Division transfer station policies have changed. Please read the 2016 Trash Policy.

The Utilities Division will allocate two passes per tribal member household to be issued and the registration of vehicles disposing of trash will be required annually. Availability of these passes will commence on March 1st, 2016 at the Utilities Administration office and will become effective at the Transfer Station on April 1st, 2016.

Your cooperation for these requirements will ensure that ONLY Tribal Members and Tribal Departments will be utilizing the Transfer Station as it was intended.

If you have any questions, please call the Utilities office at 970-563-5500.




Trash services to the Tribe are contracted out to professional trash companies. Utilities Administration takes care of the billing and collection for the program and coordinates the services to Tribal members and Tribal businesses. The Utilities Division also provides a trash transfer station to accept trash from Tribal businesses and members. The transfer station is located just south of the town of Ignacio.
