Midvale City provides curbside collection of residential trash, recyclable materials, bulky waste items and green waste through Ace Recycling and Disposal. Not all properties (HOA’s, commercial buildings, apartments) receive these services through Midvale City.
Although many materials are now recyclable, all occupied properties in Midvale City are required to subscribe to services to prevent issues associated with the accumulation of waste and the impacts it can have on the community.
To order additional or replacement receptacles, or for other customer service inquiries, please contact the Midvale City Utility Department at 801-567-7200, option #1.
Curbside Trash and Recycling Collection
Ace Recycling & Disposal provides residents with 95-gallon receptacles for trash and recycling. Please have your trash or recycling receptacles out the night before or no later than 6:30 a.m. on your service day. Trash will be picked up on a weekly basis and recycling is picked up on a bi-weekly basis. Please see the Recycling & Bulky Item/Green Waste Schedule below for more details regarding recycling dates. Review the Midvale City Trash and Recycle Map to determine if you live in a yellow or blue pick up area. Items that are accepted for recycling can be found on the Acceptable Recycle Items list. Please recycle ONLY the items described on this list.
All materials placed curbside for collection must fit in the appropriate receptacle or it will not be collected. Please place the receptacles in the street with the wheels against the curb or within two feet of the blacktop. Point the handle towards the house with the opening of the container faced towards the street. All materials must fit in the receptacles with the lid down.
Trash (Brown Receptacle): All non-recyclable materials are to be placed in your brown trash receptacle. It's important to note that recyclable items are not sorted or removed from the landfill-bound waste stream. This means that everything that goes in your brown barrel will end up in the landfill, so be sure to consider what type of material you're throwing away before you dispose of it.
Recycling (Blue Receptacle): It is important to know what can and cannot be placed into the recycling barrels to ensure efficient processing of materials and to protect the machinery and workers from harm. View the Acceptable Recycled Items list for more information.
Unacceptable items for your brown and blue receptacles: Please do not put dirt, rock, concrete or sod in the receptacles. 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.
Lost, Stolen or Damaged Trash and Recycling Containers
If your trash and/or recycling receptacles are stolen, call Midvale City at 801-567-7200 and select option #1 to report the incident. If your trash or recycling can is damaged Ace Recycling & Disposal will replace the container and the City will assess the replacement cost on your utility bill (if the damage was due to negligence.)
If you think your receptacles have been missed, please check your neighbors to make sure their receptacles have been dumped. Ace Recycling & Disposal only collects one side of the street at a time. If your side of the street has been picked up and your can is still full, please call Ace Recycling & Disposal at 801-363-9995.

If your trash service day falls on a holiday, receptacles will be picked up one day later for the remainder of the week.
