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.
