There will be no electronic waste collection events in 2019 due to a lack of sponsorship funding, which facilitated these events in Salt Lake City and County in previous years.
There will be Household Hazardous Waste events (see below) this summer.
Please use the following options to responsibly dispose of your electronics:
- Donate where possible!
- Schedule a Call 2 Haul collection for your electronics.
- Year round electronic waste disposal services are available at the Salt Lake Valley Landfill and other facilities.
- Fluorescent tubes and CFL’s can be dropped off at locations around the County (including at the Salt Lake County Building, 2nd Floor Information Desk – 451 S. State Street)
Household Hazardous Waste Collection
The Salt Lake County Health Department is responsible for the safe disposal of Household Hazardous Waste.
Household hazardous waste (HHW) is anything in or around your home that is poisonous, flammable, corrosive, or toxic.
These items can be disposed of for free, year-round, at the HHW processing center at the Salt Lake Valley Landfill.

In addition, several summertime collection events for residents are organized across Salt Lake County.
No electronic waste will be accepted at these Household Hazardous Waste events.
