Ski equipment recycling

Recycle Utah will once again accept skis, poles, bindings, helmets, boots, goggles, snowboards and snowboard boots for recycling as part of its fall snow sports recycling collection.

The materials will be sent to the Snow Sports Industries of America (SIA)’s recycling facility, which shreds them and repurposes the materials for use in decking, flooring, signage and furniture, according to a press release from Recycle Utah.

This year, Recycle Utah will be charged by SIA to recycle the equipment. However, because of donations received during Live PC Give PC, Recycle Utah will be able to continue the program, which is made possible with the help of Vail Resorts, Park City Municipal Corporation, Powdr Corporation, the Sunrise Rotary Club and SIA.
