Beginning May 2, 2023, Ogden City will begin picking up recycling on a bi-weekly basis. This means that your recycling will be picked up every other week on the same day that your normal garbage is picked up. THIS DOES NOT CHANGE YOUR NORMAL GARBAGE PICK-UP. Garbage will continue to be picked up every week on your normal collection day.
After careful review of facility options, their capabilities, and the cost of bringing our materials there, City Administration has determined that the most economic and responsible option is to deliver our recycling waste to Integrated Waste Management in Davis County, with their new dirty MRF (Material Recovery Facility). Based on our review, we felt confident that Integrated Waste Management would recycle our waste consistent with our goals of protecting the environment and reducing landfill. Utilizing Wasatch Integrated is beneficial due to their recycling process, and has increased the recyclable list from only #1 and #2, to the new expanded recycling list you can find below!
Residents are encouraged to sort out and place the following items in their blue cans:
- Plastics #1, #2, (#3 is NOT included), #4, #5, #6, #7 Complete List
- Household (Kitchen) Steel and aluminum cans
- To save space in your can, please crush your cans
- Clean unwaxed cardboard
- To save space in your can, please break down your cardboard boxes
- Clean Paper
