Compost, Recycling & Hazardous Waste
Compost and recycling
Teton Conservation District encourages waste diversion through recycling and composting. Through technical assistance and cost share grants, the District supports Teton County Integrated Solid Waste & Recycling (TCISWR), composting program contractors, the Town of Jackson, and others carrying out composting and recycling efforts.
As requested by TCISWR, the District provides input on strategy options for the existing landfill recovery, as well as the future diversion, processing, and use of organic and other waste stream materials. This effort includes a consideration of energy production from waste stream materials.
hazardous household waste
Teton Conservation District works with local entities including Teton County Integrated Solid Waste & Recycling to promote the recycling and proper disposal of household hazardous waste and e-waste. In 2003, the Teton County Commissioners passed a resolution banning hazardous waste from the Teton County Trash Transfer Station. Proper disposal and recycling of computers and electronics is important because they contain heavy metals, including lead and mercury, and other hazardous materials.
