Don’t bag your recycling items in a plastic bag. A plastic bag of any kind can ruin equipment at the recycling plant.
Don’t overfill your bin or leave the lid open. If the items in your bin become wet from snow or rain, the load may be considered contaminated.
What if my container was missed on pick-up day?
If your container was not emptied on your regularly scheduled pick-up day, call 801-576-6504. New Year's Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day could affect your pick-up day. If your pick-up falls on or after the holiday, your pick-up will be delayed by one day for that week only.
