Recycle your snow sports gear

Recycle Utah is collecting and recycling snow sports equipment from April 15 to May 31. Gear that is no longer usable and cannot be taken to a ski swap, such as bent poles, can be brought to Recycle Utah. The collected snow gear will be sent to Snowsports Industries America to be shredded and recycled into core material for new skis, decking, flooring and furniture.

Drop off skis, snowboards, bindings, poles, boots, helmets and goggles at the Recycling Center, located 1951 Woodbine Way. For more information, call Recycle Utah at 435-649-9698 or visit .

The dedication is part of a country-wide celebration of National Bookmobile Day, which began as a way to remind the public about the vital role that bookmobiles provide libraries every day.
