Dump to be closed April 20

The Moab Landfill on Sand Flats Road will be closed Saturday, April 20, which is the day before Easter, when the Jeep Safari officially comes to an end, according to a public notice from officials who operate the facility. 

Heavy traffic on Sand Flats Road intensifies as the week progresses, and on the Saturday before Easter Sunday, numerous traffic congestion problems occur around the landfill that is located on Dump Hill.  

In the past, landfill operators working at the gate and local residents trying to deliver loads to have been either unable to get to the site, or once they got there, were unable to leave because of frequent road blockages.  

Operating hours will return to normal times on Monday, April 22.
