Happy Holidays from the Emigration Canyon Community Council!

The ECCC has been busy this past year with our usual responsibilities - organizing the annual Firewise event, promoting public safety and serving as a liaison with the county and our municipal services providers. Read on for our last electronic newsletter of 2018: ECCC election results, upcoming public meetings, safety reminders from Unified Fire Authority, and year-end news from Wasatch Front Waste & Recycling.

Looking for a last minute holiday gift* for a neighbor? The ECCC is organizing the sale of reflective house number signs to anyone in the canyon. To date, we have sold over 100 signs. Our firefighters and police officers say the signs have already improved public safety. You can order them for $20 each ($21 if paying via PayPal) through our website: http://www.emigrationcanyon.org/this-sign-could-save-your-life/. *Orders placed now will not arrive in time for the holidays. 

We are looking forward to the new year with renewed goals and plans to fulfill our mission of serving Emigration Canyon residents. Stay in touch - we are always available! Check out our website, Twitter and Facebook pages or email us at EmigrationCanyonUT@gmail.com.

Safety Reminders from Fire Station 119

PREVENTING HOLIDAY ACCIDENTS

Nothing is more important than keeping your little ones safe. Yet every minute, 17 children go to the emergency room with unintentional injuries – that’s 9.2 million accidents that didn’t have to happen every year.

It’s often small decisions – a candle left burning, a dry Christmas tree or child left alone even for a moment – that could have life-changing consequences. When it comes to holiday dangers, the numbers are more startling than you might think:

  • Each year, fires occurring during the holiday season claim the lives of more than 400 Americans, injure 1,650 more, and cause more than $990 million in damage.

  • Candle-related fires are one of the most common holiday home hazards, averaging more than 12,000 each year, resulting in 136 deaths, more than 1,000 injuries and $450 million in direct property damage.

  • About 5,800 people – two to three every hour – were treated in emergency departments for fall-related injuries sustained while decorating during the holiday seasons.

Christmas trees, both natural and artificial, were the item first ignited in an estimated average of 240 reported home structure fires per year. These fires caused an estimated average of 13 civilian deaths, 27 civilian injuries and $16.7 million in direct property damage per year.

By taking simple steps, we have an opportunity to help change these statistics together. Committing a minute to safety can be as quick and easy as testing your smoke alarm, taking pillows out of the crib or simply using a cabinet lock. Imagine if every parent committed just one minute to safety every day? Thousands, perhaps millions, of injuries could be avoided. Parents today have a powerful opportunity to raise a safer generation of children, and it can all start by committing just one minute to safety.

Wasatch Front Waste & Recycling District Updates

Please do not bag recyclables!
WFWRD can no longer accept any plastic bags in recycling bins. All recyclables that are bagged in plastic will be landfilled; they will not be sorted. You can continue to bag your recyclables in paper grocery bags. 

Holiday Collections
WFWRD will not be collecting on Christmas Day nor on New Year’s Day. All collections will be delayed by one day to accommodate for these holidays. Emigration Canyon Township collections will occur on Saturday instead of Friday the week of Christmas & New Year's. 

Curbside Christmas Tree Collection
We will be collecting Christmas trees during the month of January. For collection, place your undecorated tree on your curb. The trees will be collected the day after your regular collection day. If we don't get your tree one week, we will be back the following week. Please call our office for additional information.

  • We cannot accept trees with decorations, lights, tree stands or flocking.
  • Do not place the tree in your garbage, recycling, or green waste can.
  • If the tree is over eight feet tall, please cut it into smaller sections.
  • We cannot accept artificial trees

Recycling Reminder
As gifts and presents are exchanged this season, please remember that paper-based wrapping paper is recyclable, but Mylar wrapping and bows/ribbons are not recyclable.

Green Waste Collections
The green waste collection will end for the season on Friday, December 14th, 2018.

Can Set-Out
We would like to remind all residents to have their cans placed on the street by 7:00am on the day of their normal collection. Salt Lake Valley Health Department Regulation 7, Ordinance 4.3.2 also requires that the cans be taken off the street the same day they are emptied. We ask all residents to keep this in mind and to have their cans ready for collection in time, and to also ensure they are taken off the street in time for the health and safety of our neighborhoods.
