Sanitation company plans to build new office, shop at 23 and G roads

Rocky Mountain Sanitation plans to build a 6,000-square-foot office and shop facility near the intersection of 23 and G roads.

Business owners Lisa and Loren Mullen had been renting a 5,000-square-foot building at 1077 22 Road.

They expect construction of the new facility, by Vostatek Construction, to be completed by the end of the year.

The new site has more than four acres, where Rocky Mountain Sanitation can store trucks and equipment.

“We’ll actually be closer to town, which will be nicer for our customers,” Lisa Mullen said.

The company opened in 1997 with two trucks and one employee.

Today, it serves 9,000 customers in Mesa County with 16 trucks and 19 employees. Lisa Mullen said it’s likely Rocky Mountain Sanitation will need another five-day-a-week route by the end of the year.

With the recent buyout of Monument Refuse Service by Waste Management, the Mullens said the expansion is a good way to assure their loyal customers that they aren’t going anywhere.
