Plastic bottles, aluminum cans, newspaper, and plain cardboard are among the items that can be recycled. Glass, Styrofoam, and food-contaminated items cannot. For a complete list of which materials are acceptable and how to prepare them for recycling contact us.

You do not need to separate acceptable recyclables. Everything can go into the recycling cart together.

If you would like to participate in curbside recycling, please call city hall at (801-785-5045) they will order a recycling cart to be dropped off at your residence.

Apartment residents and all others who do not have individual curbside garbage pick-up will need to work through your Home Owners Association to arrange special recycling pick-up directly with Republic Services.

The recycling carts are about the same size as your current curbside waste cart. Both carts are approximately 95 gallons in volume.

No. The Republic Services trucks are designed to pick up recyclables only from the recycle carts. You will need to compact the recyclables or hold the overflow until the next pick-up time. Another option is to order an additional recycle cart from the city. The extra cart will cost an additional $5.90 per month.

Currently this is not an option, but the city and Republic Services are continually exploring ways to make these services the most cost effective for Pleasant Grove’s citizens.

No. While the new curbside recycling program accepts newspaper, our local schools have been benefiting from newspaper recycling bins for years. If you have been in the habit of donating your old newspapers to benefit your local school, Pleasant Grove City encourages you to continue.
