Business recycling workshop

Local business owners and managers will learn how to start cost-effective recycling programs from other business leaders at the second Business Recycling workshop co-sponsored by Recycle Utah and the Park City Board of Realtors.

Park City and Summit County businesses that are actively recycling will share their results on Tuesday, June 12th from 3-5 p.m. at the Alf Engen Ski Museum at the Utah Olympic Park.

"Recycling is an amenity for the 21st century," said Richard Lee of Chase Bank in Park City and a member of the Board of Realtors Environmental Committee. "Businesses that recycle are meeting their customers’ expectations and protecting the environment at the same time."

With Summit County’s new solid waste contract beginning July 1, businesses will learn how and why to separate recycling from trash collection. Participants will have an opportunity to discuss issues with members of the Summit County Department of Public Works, and with haulers from Good Earth, Curb It and Allied Waste.

The workshop is open to Summit County business owners and managers, and HOA board members who make decisions about financial expenditures, operations, and waste disposal in their businesses. Hotel managers, resort property managers, condominium homeowner association officers, retail business owners, and restaurant managers are especially encouraged to attend.
