West Jordan - If you come across hazardous household waste during your cleaning, remember it’s important to dispose of properly. The Trans-Jordan Landfill, 10873 S. Highway U-111, accepts a variety of hazardous waste, including:
• Paint • Pesticides
• Oil • Transmission Fluid
• Antifreeze • Batteries
• Household chemicals
• Ink jet cartridges
• Electronic devices
Materials can be dropped off free of charge, Monday-Saturday from 7 a.m.-6 p.m. While you’re there, visit the re-use shed to see if there’s anything you might need. You’ll find paint, household chemicals, as well as lawn and garden chemicals that are still useable and free to the public. One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Call Trans-Jordan Landfill at 801-569-8994 for more information.
There is also a free household hazardous waste collection event at City Hall on Sept. 19 from 10 a.m. to noon for residential waste only, no commercial waste.
Report illegal dumping of household hazardous waste by calling the Salt Lake Valley Health Department tip line at 385-468-3862. Remember we all live downstream.
