3XM Grinding & Compost will host an Oct. 12 groundbreaking for its organic waste-processing site on Amber Road.
Thunder Mountain Organics, at 59093 Amber Road, is being built to handle green waste that would otherwise go into landfills. It will operate on a special use permit through Montrose County, which is subject to a review once Thunder Mountain has been in operation for six months. The business is also securing necessary approvals from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.
The groundbreaking is open to the public and is slated from 1 - 3 p.m. Oct. 12. The event includes giveaways, lunch and information. The formal groundbreaking ceremony is at 1 p.m.
