Why does my load for disposal need to be tarped? What if I only have dirt, concrete, or items that won’t fly away?
In order to maintain our Conditional Use Permit from South Jordan City we are required to enforce ALL loads coming to the landfill are tarped and secured. The State of Utah also has a similar requirement (code here). These requirements / laws are put into place to ensure that flying debris do not cause safety issues on our roadways as well as keep the cities clean from unwanted garbage that can leave uncovered loads.
What Type Of Material / Waste is Not Accepted
Trans-Jordan DOES NOT accept the following items:
(All drums must have the top completely removed and contents removed for possible acceptance)
Any item, or part of an item, that has been registered.
Examples: Vehicles, Trailers, Camp Trailers, Motorcycles, ATVs, Boats, etc.
These items must be taken to a Licensed Dismantler for disposal. You can find a list of dismantlers at mvp.tax.utah.gov/_/#1 under the “Dealer
business directory search” link and then choose to look for Dismantlers.

Do You Accept Dirt, Concrete, or other Construction Material
We can take these materials but are costly to dispose at Trans-Jordan as they are charged by weight at our normal gate rate. Look for alternative disposal locations on the internet (ex: C&D Landfills)
