WFWRD Changes the 2020 Annual Area Cleanup Program

 

Salt Lake County, UT – Wasatch Front Waste & Recycling District (WFWRD) is announcing a change to the Area Cleanup Program they provide to their residents. This change is due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, and staffing challenges to manage the traditional service.

 

Pam Roberts, General Manager, stated, “We need to make this change to ensure we have enough staff to provide curbside waste and recycling collections.”

 

Brad Christopherson, Board Chair of the Administrative Control Board: “We believe this change balances the needs of protecting our employees’ health, the requirements of our mandates, and the needs of residents.” 

 

Roberts explained, “Our plan is to provide a means for residents to remove their bulky items in a different way. I have concerns for staff, dedicated to this service, coming in direct contact with waste that comes with providing the Area Cleanup. We are developing a plan to provide a trailer, or container reservation for our residents, and we hope to have this option available starting in May and run through September”.

 

We recommend that residents use the Landfill Voucher program wherever possible to lessen the impact of the change for Area Cleanup Program. More information on the Landfill Voucher Program can be found on WFWRD’s website, at https://wasatchfrontwaste.org/garbage-collection.

 

WFWRD proudly serves the cities of Cottonwood Heights, Herriman, Holladay, Millcreek, Taylorsville, and portions of Murray and Sandy; the Metro Townships of Copperton, Emigration, Kearns, Magna and White City, the Town of Brighton; and all unincorporated areas of Salt Lake County.
