curbside collection

Collection of brown compost containers resumes this week

Beginning March 5, Salt Lake City ends the six-week wintertime suspension of yard waste collection. The annual suspension occurs during a period of very low demand for green waste disposal.

Residents may now place their brown cans at the curb on their regular collection day each week.

“We appreciate our residents’ understanding as we work to provide the highest quality waste service, while saving resources and being good stewards of our air quality,” said Lance Allen, Waste & Recycling Director for Salt Lake City.

Salt Lake City is reminding residents of the six-week suspension of compost can collection beginning the week of January 22.

Each winter, the City temporarily suspends collection of the brown yard waste containers during a period of very low use, in order to save fuel costs and reduce air pollution during wintertime inversion weeks.
