RIVERTON RESIDENTS ENCOURAGED TO *RECYCLE RIGHT*
Recycling contamination has presented a big problem to our recycling efforts and to ensure that Riverton residents have access to the correct information, we want to provide some details about recycling. Cleanliness is important so that you do not contaminate your entire bin. If just one container has food waste, it can contaminate an entire bale of recycling causing hundreds of items to end up in the landfill. Riverton City encourages responsible recycling. If you have questions, please contact the Trans Jordan Landfill at (801) 569-8994.
DO RECYCLE IN BLUE BIN:

  • Aluminum cans
  • Aluminum foil
  • Corrugated cardboard
  • Dairy and juice cartons
  • Steel and tin cans
  • Magazines
  • Newspapers
  • Office paper
  • Paper board
  • Phone books
  • Certain plastics. See the code on the bottom of the product. If you cannot find one – bottles, jars, and jugs – is the best way to know what is accepted
  • For glass and electronics go to the Trans Jordan Landfill, located at 10473 South Bacchus Highway, South Jordan, UT 84009
DON'T RECYCLE IN BLUE BIN:

  • Broken glass   
  • Cardboard that has food stains
  • Clothing/shoes
  • Crystal
  • Dirty plastic containers
  • Electronics
  • Food waste
  • Heat-resistant glass
  • Light bulbs
  • Plastic bag
