A message from Wasatch Front Waste & Recycling District
Green Waste Program
The Weekly Green Waste Collection Program will resume beginning Friday, March 22nd for Emigration Township residents. Emigration Township currently has 39 out of the 5,939 district-wide subscribers. This is a subscription program that helps divert green waste from the landfill to be processed into mulch that can be purchased for use from the Salt Lake Valley and Trans-Jordan Landfills. At $114 per year, a green waste can is less expensive than an additional black refuse can at $204 per year. For more information on this program and composting, please visit our website at: http://wasatchfrontwaste.org/green-waste.
We are still seeing many situations where residents are placing their recycling materials in plastic bags. The recycling processing facilities will not accept plastic-bagged materials, and they often times forward them to the landfill, unopened. Please do not place anything in your recycling can that is wrapped in plastic bags.
Contact our Sustainability Coordinator, Jeffrey Summerhays (email@example.com or 385-468-6337) if you have specific recycling questions.
