Weekly recycling services begin Sept. 1
Posted on 08/17/2011

Beginning Sept. 1, residents in Cottonwood Heights will begin receiving weekly recycling collection.  This means you will no longer have to remember which week to place your recycling cans out at the curb!  Recycling will be collected each week on the regular garbage collection day.


A recent survey indicated that 69% of sanitation district residents were in favor of weekly recycling collections.  This is a 28% increase since the sanitation district's last survey in 2009.  According to Salt Lake County Sanitation, as residents understand the benefits of recycling they are asking for more ways to recycle, including more frequent recycle pickups.

To learn more about the implementation of weekly recycling, the waste audits performed and other services please contact Salt Lake County Sanitation at 385-468-6325 or visit their website at www.sanitation.slco.org.
