The city contracts with Republic Services for all trash and recycling in the city. Call Republic Services at 801-924-8500 for damaged or broken cans. For all other can needs, including changing the number or type of cans, please call the City at 801-763-3000.

Additional Garbage Cans (each)$  6.65
Recycling Can$  6.00

Trash is picked up weekly, recycling every other week.

Acceptable items: 
Corrugated cardboard (break-down boxes), paper, aluminum and steel, plastics #1-7. Recycling must be clean (i.e., no residual food or liquid). Separate milk cartons from cap and ring, which are a different plastic type. 

Unacceptable items: GLASS, Styrofoam, food waste, green waste, textiles, hazardous waste, etc.

A note on glass recycling: Although glass is recyclable, it cannot be placed in your All-In-One Recycling bin. Your All-In-One Recycling is hand-sorted, meaning broken glass poses a danger to employees. For that reason glass is prohibited and must be taken to a glass-only, drop-off location.
