Waste Less, Save More! SLCgreen Encourages You To Downsize Your Garbage

Truck Wraps Collage

Have you noticed the new truck wraps driving around Salt Lake City?

We’ve outfitted all of our Sanitation vehicles with bright new wrappers promoting downsizing options available to all city residents. So keep your eyes open on garbage day!

Every month, you pay one fee for your garbage can – that’s it. Your recycling and compost can service is included in that fee. There are three garbage can sizes, and if you downsize your can you also downsize your monthly waste fee!

Can Size Monthly Fee per Can
90-gallon Garbage $21.00
60-gallon Garbage $17.75
40-gallon Garbage $13.75

Call (801) 535-6999 to downsize your garbage can today.

It’s Apricot Time & We Need Volunteers!

Trees across Salt Lake City are heavy with ripe, delicious apricots and we need your help to harvest them!

We are in great need for volunteers for harvesting events on the following days:

  • Saturday, July 12 (beginning at 8 a.m.)
  • Monday, July 14
  • Tuesday, July 15

Volunteer teams will help harvest local apricot trees in the Salt Lake City. Volunteers will be able to bring a portion of the harvest home with them to enjoy.

No experience is necessary – training will be done with volunteers on site.

To sign up please email SLCgreen@slcgov.com.

SLC FruitShare helps to minimize food waste, promote local food production, and enhance the community’s knowledge of fruit trees by engaging local fruit tree owners.

Throughout the year, fruit trees are pruned, thinned and the fruit is then picked and donated to non-profits working on sustainable food and hunger issues (Utahns Against Hunger and Green Urban Lunchbox).
