Are there specific Summit County Hazardous Waste Collection Days?
Twice a year, Recycle Utah, Summit County, Park City Municipal and Snyderville Basin Water Reclamation District host a Household Hazardous Waste Collection event that is FREE to residents of Summit County. These collections are held in the Cabriolet parking lot of Canyons Resort. We aim to host these events annually on the last Saturday of April and the last Saturday of September.
During these events, we can accept all types of Household Hazardous Waste from Summit County residents only. Business waste will be turned away, and YES! we can tell if you’re a business! Check our events calendar for dates.
What is Hazardous Waste?
Simply defined, a hazardous waste is a waste with properties that make it dangerous or capable of having a harmful effect on human health or the environment. Hazardous waste is generated from many sources, ranging from industrial manufacturing process wastes to batteries and may come in many forms, including liquids, solids gases, and sludges.
EPA developed a regulatory definition and process that identifies specific substances known to be hazardous and provides objective criteria for including other materials in the regulated hazardous waste universe.
Recycling hazardous waste has a variety of benefits including reducing the consumption of raw materials and the volume of waste materials that must be treated and disposed. However, improper disposal or storage can cause fires, and contamination of soil groundwater and drinking water.
What if I don’t live in Summit County?
Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) is handled specific to the county you live in. You can not dispose of HHW outside your county and will likely get turned away. You might have to show proof of residency to drop off items.
Many items are accepted free of charge but this varies by county.
If you live in a county other than one of these, please contact your local county health or solid waste department for guidance. Again, you need to dispose of Hazardous Waste within your home county.
