Curbside Green Waste Collection

Each District residence has the opportunity to obtain a green waste can. The green waste collection program is a subscription program. Collections are provided weekly between mid-March and mid-December.

***This program starts every year the 3rd Monday in March and ends the 2nd Friday in December.***

    • A green waste can is less expensive than an additional garbage can. (Annual fees for Green Waste can = $114 vs. Annual fees for additional waste can = $204.)
    • Green waste is less expensive to process, keeping costs low.
    • Reduce the amount of waste sent to the landfill as garbage.
    • Green waste is processed into usable organic compost.
    • Reduce greenhouse emissions caused by decomposing organic landfill waste.

We will begin the program the third Monday in March and end on the second Friday of December. (For 2018: March 19th through December 14th.  For 2019: March 18th through December 13th.)

If you have any questions or concerns, please call our Sustainability Coordinator Jeffrey Sean Summerhays at (385) 468-6337. We will send you more information and keep in touch throughout the year with important dates and reminders.


The fees include a one-time, $60 start-up fee and an annual fee of $114 for the nine months of collection. Those interested in second green cans still need to pay the $60 start-up fee, but all additional green cans are $36 per can, per year. This program is self-sustained through subscription fees and not subsidized with any other fees or tax dollars. There is no obligation to participate since this is an optional service for those who want it and are willing to pay for the services. Interested participants may also sign up in 2016 with the same startup fee of $60 and an appropriate fee pending the month you sign up. Please allow for your request to be processed and for our front office staff to contact you for payment options. If you wish to use a check, make sure to indicate that it is for the green waste curbside can.

A Green Waste can is $90 less expensive per year than an additional garbage can.


  • Curbside green waste collection will begin in mid-March and end in mid-December (a firm start and end date will be announced for the upcoming year).
  • Collection is the same day as your regular refuse and recycling day. (exception: Green Waste collection for the City of Herriman is on Mondays.)
  • Customers will receive a special green waste can with vents to release moisture.
  • The $60 start up fee allows Wasatch Front Waste to purchase and deliver the cans.
  • Contact Jeffrey Sean Summerhays if you have any other questions at or (385) 468-6337

Now is actually the perfect time of year to trim your trees!

  • Salt Lake County Ordinance 14.12.050, and other municipal ordinances, require that trees and landscaping which overhangs the street pavement need to be trimmed to a minimum height of thirteen and one half feet (13 ½ feet) above the street pavement. Following these guidelines will help our trucks navigate through your neighborhood and empty your cans without potential damage to your trees and our trucks. We appreciate your help.
