As a member of Wasatch Integrated Waste Management District, your city is one of the most progressive cities in Utah when it comes to environmentally responsible management of your solid waste. The District operates a modern waste-to-energy facility which uses your waste to supply heat to Hill Air Force Base offsetting the combustion of natural gas. Other programs and projects operated by the District include a landfill gas to energy project, green waste recycling, household hazardous waste recycling and disposal, steel recycling, and availability of recycling bins for residential use. This system currently keeps about 50% of the waste generated in the District from ending up in the landfill. The average recycling rate in Utah is about 5%.
