New MONTHLY Bulky Item and Green Waste Program

Post Date:03/06/2018 9:46 AM

Curbside Bulky Item and Green Waste Collection 

Starting April 16, 2018, Residential trash service also includes monthly bulky item and green waste collection. Ace Recycling & Disposal will pick up bulky items and green waste that are too big to fit in trash cans on the third FULL week of every month on the customers normally scheduled trash day. See Recycling & Bulky Item/Green Waste Schedule below for more details. Review the Midvale City Trash and Recycle Map to determine if you live in a yellow or blue pick up area.

 

The City encourages everyone to recycle bulky items that can be reused by donating them to a local charity. Several charities will pick up the donated items at your house.  If you have items that you need to dispose of, please follow these guidelines: 

  1. Bulky waste items include furniture, carpet, mattresses, water heaters, lamps, minor/small automobile parts, car seats, bikes, large toys and household appliances (without Freon). There is a 75-pound limit.
  2. Green waste items include wood products such as 2 x 4's, particleboard, plywood, etc. (large metal and concrete must be removed), leaves, twigs, pine needles, wood chips, and tree limbs. Green waste does NOT include grass clippings, weeds or non-woody plants.
  3. All materials including tree limbs and stumps should be cut into 4-foot lengths and be no more than 18” in diameter, be bundled and twined together, and must weigh less than 75 pounds.
  4. Loose material (leaves, twigs, pine needles, wood chips, etc.) should be placed inside trash bags or boxes. They may also be placed in trash cans.
  5. Place bulky and green waste items on your curb no sooner than 2 days prior to your normally scheduled trash day and no later than 6:30 a.m. on trash day. Ace Recycling & Disposal will not return to pick up items if they are not properly prepared and placed on the curbside in time.
  6. Stack green waste together, bundled in 4-foot sections. Place bulky waste in another pile at least 2 feet away from green waste.  Do not park vehicles within 15 the pile.
  7. Freon must be removed from items (refrigerators, freezers and air conditioners) by a professional and be tagged with a copy of the receipt.
  8. 55-gallon drums must be emptied and have the tops removed.
  9. Do not place items in front of your neighbor’s home.
  10. Scavenging is against the law.

Unacceptable items include:

We cannot accept dirt, rock, concrete or sod. Additional prohibited items include flammable materials such as oil, gas, and paint; hot ashes and coals; hazardous and toxic waste; septic tank waste; unbagged animal waste; explosive and radioactive materials; automotive products including motor oil, tires, and batteries; and metal and debris from construction, remodeling, or demolition projects.
