Where Summit County residents can recycle

Summit County residents have several choices to make sure their recyclables don’t end up in the county landfills.

The Summit County Commissioners have established a pilot program to offer curbside recycling pickup to residents. Bins and weekly pickup are funded through property taxes. Look for your neighborhood on the following lists and call the Summit County Department of Public Works to start your service.

All residents are welcome to drop off their recycling at Recycle Utah in Park City. The center, located on Woodbine Way behind the old Anderson Lumber off of Kearns Blvd, accepts any color glass, aluminum cans, paper, newspaper, books, plastic, cardboard and paperboard, any metal, batteries, CDs & DVDs, mercury-containing items, moving boxes, and EPS blocks of foam.

Computers & other e-waste are accepted at the center year-round. Drop-off is free of charge with the exception of monitors and TVs which are $5-10 each to defray the cost of the proper disposal of toxins.

Recycle Utah maintains two free large bins, one for aluminum cans and one for mixed paper. These bins are located behind the fire station in Coalville and in the Wal-Mart parking lot in Kimball Junction.

Mixed paper bins are located in Kamas behind the Summit County Library and in Heber in the Smith’s parking lot. For more information contact Recycle Utah, 649-9698.

If your neighborhood is not in the pilot curbside pickup program, and you wish to pay for recycling pickup, call your local recycling haulers to make arrangements: Good Earth Recycling, Joe Kernan, 655-0272 or Shirin Spangenberg, 901-2568.
