No Garbage Collection Monthly Fee Increase for 2015

 The Administrative Control Board of the Wasatch Front Waste and Recycling District has rescinded the earlier anticipated monthly fee increase for 2015. This is due to the efforts of district staff improving efficiencies through residential routing to reduce miles and making adjustments to the fleet replacement. Efforts towards recycling by our customers have also assisted in keeping garbage dumping costs manageable.  

Wasatch Front Waste and Recycling District will be conducting our 2014 customer survey Monday, November 24th through Wednesday, December 14, 2014.  Please visit our website at wasatchfrontwaste.org and complete a survey to help the district better monitor and improve our services.
