Did you know?

In Salt Lake County, we use a process called “single-stream” recycling, where residents can put all their approved recyclables into one bin. These materials are collected and taken to a materials recovery facility (MRF) where they are sorted, baled, and sold to manufacturers, who turn them into new products.

Items NOT accepted in curbside recycling

  • Plastic Bags

  • Napkins/Tissues
  • Plastic Film/Food Wrappers
  • Glass
  • Hose, Wire, Cords or Rope
  • Yard or Food Waste
  • Electronics
  • Clothing or Shoes
  • Packing/Peanut Styrofoam

  • Propane Tanks/Batteries
  • Needles/Biohazardous Waste

Do NOT enclose recyclables in plastic bags or kitchen bin liners (i.e. do not “bag your recyclables.”) This will prevent your items from being recycled.
