Information regarding the 2020 noxious weed disposal fund

San Juan County has provided funding over the last several years for “free” noxious weed disposal for residents. The incentivized no-cost weed disposal has been both popular and well used. The County reimburses the waste station operators for the cost of weed disposal unless paid for by the resident.

Unfortunately, the annual budget for free weed disposal has been quickly overspent this year due to historically high volumes of noxious weeds being brought into the waste stations. County waste stations will not be able to accept noxious weeds for free beginning October 1 through the end of the year. From now through Sept. 30 each household will still be still able to dispose of one standard (approximately 32 gallon) can/bag of approved noxious weeds for free (additional bags charged).
