Toxic materials will come back to haunt you.
One of our primary goals is to keep toxic chemicals and heavy metals out of our environment. When toxic materials like mercury, lead, and pesticides end up in the landfill they leach into the ground and into your drinking water.
Recycle Utah accepts:
- Compact Fluorescent Lights (CFLs) and fluorescent light tubes
- Thermometers, thermostats, smoke detectors, and mercury switches
- Batteries -- including alkaline, rechargeable (nickel cadmium, nickel, lithium ion or lead), computer, and car batteries
- Cell phones, ipods, chargers, and cables
- Electronic Waste
Please note: we can only accpet small amounts of these specific materials from residents, not from businesses. We are not a formal HazMat facility.
All other hazardous waste should be taken to the Summit County Landfill HazMat Facility.
*RU's Annual Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Collection Day*
Once a year, we have an HHW collection day that is FREE to residents of Summit and Wasatch Counties. These collections are held in the Cabriolet parking lot of Canyons Resort, usually in early May. Please check our events calendar for the next collection date.
During these events, we can accept all Household Hazardous Waste from residents.
