Fireworks Disposal

The summer holidays are quickly approaching. Fireworks and barbecues are common ways to celebrate. We remind all residents that fireworks and fire pit/barbecue ashes must be completely cooled before placing them in the waste cans. Smoldering fireworks or embers can melt the plastic of the can and create a larger fire hazard. 

Butlerville Days

Come see a recycling truck in the Butlerville Days Parade! We will be in the Butlerville Days Parade and hope to see you all there too.  

International Plastic Bag Free Day

On July 3, Wasatch Front Waste & Recycling joined other organizations around the world in support of International Plastic Bag Free Day (http://www.plasticbagfreeday.org/). 

There are a lot of good ways to celebrate, and the easiest requires a simple resolution from each individual. Even if just for one day, choose paper over plastic; or even better, bring your own bags to the retailers to pick up your goods. Some stores even offer discounts or other perks for the customers that bring their own reusable bags!
