The Solid Waste Special Service District now offers electronics and universal waste recycling from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Saturday at the Community Recycle Center on Sand Flats Road. Fees apply.
Electronic waste includes items such as computers, televisions, printers, scanners, cellular phones, cables, extension cords, keyboards, speakers and more.
Universal waste includes items such as batteries — except for those with lead acid — compact fluorescent lightbulbs (CFL/Curly-Q), fluorescent tube lights, antifreeze, and mercury-containing devices (e.g., thermostats, mercury switches).
The Solid Waste Special Service District contracts electronic waste recycling through the state-approved vendor, METech Recycling, that disassembles all electronics in Utah, provides certified data destruction, and nothing is shipped overseas. METech Recycling holds the State of Utah Electronics Recycling contract for responsible recycling and remarketing surplus electronic equipment: www.metechrecycling.com/.
