Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) Fleet

Wastatch Front Waste and Recycling District (WFWRD) completed the transition to a full CNG residential fleet in August. CNG fuel is less expensive than diesel, and emits 20-29 percent fewer greenhouse gases. With more than 82,000 homes served each week and more than 1.3 million miles driven each year, this saves around 4,000 tons of carbon dioxide pollution annually. It has also saved approximately $780,000 in fuels costs since the transition started in 2011. As a result, it is helping WFWRD accomplish environmental and financial stewardship goals to better serve our customers and the community. 

Electronic Waste (E-waste)

Due to limited funding, the Salt Lake Valley Health Department will no longer be accepting E-waste at the WFWRD Offices after Friday, Feb. 24. E-waste can be dropped off at the Salt Lake Valley Landfill, Trans-Jordan Landfill, or the Sandy ABOP Center. For more information, visit our website at: http://wasatchfrontwaste.org/recycling.
