Neighborhood Cleanup Returns this Spring! Get the Details.
Spring is in the air, and that means it’s approaching time for the annual Neighborhood Cleanup Program to begin. The Neighborhood Cleanup Program is an opportunity to dispose of large waste items that are too large to fit in recycling, composting/yard waste, or garbage bins.
Large items may be placed on the curb for pickup during the dates specified for your neighborhood. When your cleanup date approaches, a postcard (as seen below) will arrive in the mail. Please make sure items are not blocking bike lanes, fire hydrants, storm drains, and sidewalks. Additionally, please donate reusable items like furniture and toys!
Here are the details:
Electronics: Televisions, computers, printers, monitors and other electronics will not be picked up during the Neighborhood Cleanup Program. Electronics often contain hazardous materials such as lead, mercury and chromium. Learn more about electronics recycling and consider taking electronics to one of Salt Lake City’s Saturday e-waste collection events, or a Salt Lake County community collection event this summer.
Household Hazardous Waste: Car batteries, cleaners, fertilizers, antifreeze, paint, pesticides, motor oil, fuels and herbicides are also not accepted during the Neighborhood Cleanup Program. These materials can contaminate groundwater and harm the environment when disposed of improperly. Learn more about proper disposal and consider dropping them off at one of the 2016 Salt Lake County community collection events.
