"There is no more important day of the entire year than America Recycles Day to re-commit yourself to recycling," says Insa Riepen, Executive Director of Recycle Utah. Americans all over the country will celebrate recycling on Thursday, Nov. 15.
Residents have several recycling choices. About 4,400 homes are part of a pilot program established by Summit County to offer curbside recycling pickup to residents. Bins and weekly pickup are funded through property taxes. To find out if curbside pickup is available in your neighborhood, call Recycle Utah at 649-9698.
All residents are welcome to drop off their recycling at Recycle Utah in Park City. The Center, located on Woodbine Way behind Anderson Lumber off of Kearns Blvd, accepts glass, aluminum, paper, newspaper, books, plastic, cardboard, all metals, batteries, CDs & DVDs, computers & other e-waste, mercury-containing items, packing boxes, and usable appliances and construction materials.
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.
For convenient neighborhood recycling, Recycle Utah maintains two 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, (435) 649-9698.
