Wind River Tribes Subsidizing Trash Disposal Fees

RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) ā€” The Northern Arapaho and Eastern Shoshone tribes are subsidizing trash disposal fees for tribal members to try to reduce illegal dumping of waste on the Wind River Indian Reservation.

The tribes signed a six-month contract with the Fremont County Solid Waste Disposal District in December. Under the deal, the tribes pay for salaries of workers at trash transfer stations and the district takes the waste to the county’s landfills at the county’s expense. Tribal members don’t have to pay any tipping fees.

The Ranger reported Monday that Wind River Environmental Quality Commission solid waste coordinator Ryan Ortiz hopes the district and the tribes will be able reach a more permanent solution.
