The City has completed curbside storm debris removal. We are thankful for everyone’s assistance in removing thousands of tons of debris and in preventing flooding by keeping storm drains clear.
For the next stage of work, we have located and documented every city stump and will begin removal and remediation throughout the month of October. See below for further details.
What are my options for storm debris cleanup?
The City is nearing completion of curbside storm debris removal. We are thankful for everyone’s assistance in removing hundreds of tons of debris and in preventing flooding by keeping storm drains clear.
For the next stage of work, we have located and documented every city stump and will begin removal and remediation throughout the month of October.
If you are in the position to self-haul material to the Salt Lake Valley Landfill, please do.
Please call the Landfill with questions at (385) 468-6370. Lines may be long but should be less at non-peak times. The Landfill is open from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday – Saturday.
Private waste haulers may also be used to help haul material. You can see a list of private haulers here. (Note this is not an exhaustive list).
We also encourage you to place green waste into your curbside brown containers as much as possible. If you need extra cans, request them via this page or by contacting us at 801-535-6999. The Waste & Recycling crews are doing their best to respond to requests as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.
What about damage to sidewalks?
The City has documented sidewalk damage and an estimated timeline now is end of January completing all sidewalk repair, weather permitting. If weather does not cooperate, it could push this work into early springtime to get the repairs completed. Additionally, crews are finding additional sidewalk sites other than those originally identified so that time-frame could change a little based on new information received.
Is it safe to go to the neighborhood park?
Salt Lake City Mayor Erin Mendenhall issued a proclamation on Thursday, September 10, 2020 which temporarily closed certain City parks and the City Cemetery as crews continue to clear debris in the aftermath of the September 8, 2020 windstorm.
The following parks are closed so City crews can remove fallen trees, branches, and debris:
