Waste & Recycling
Autumn Leaves: Remember that Salt Lake City does not pick up bags of leaves left on the curb. Instead, please use your brown compost bins. Request up to two extra compost cans for temporary placement. Fill out this form or call 801-535-6999 to request.
COVID-19 Update: All of Salt Lake City’s waste & recycling services are continuing uninterrupted at this time. This includes our garbage, recycling, and compost container collection, as well as the Call 2 Haul bulk waste program. The Education Team is also out checking containers.
The Waste & Recycling office is closed to the public. Please email email@example.com or call 801-535-6999 for waste questions.
