Fall Leaf Collection

The annual Fall Leaf Collection Program began on Oct. 15 and last through Nov. 30. 

During this time, Cottonwood Heights residents can pick up leaf bags at:

• Cottonwood Heights City Hall: 2277 E. Bengal Blvd.

• Whitmore Library: 2197 E. Fort Union Blvd.

• Wasatch Fire Station: 8295 S. Wasatch Blvd.

Leaf bags can be dropped off at:

• Bywater Park: 3149 Banbury Rd.

• Big Bear Park: 9595 S. 930 East

WFWRD leaf bags are limited to 10 bags per household, and available while supplies last. Residents can also use and drop off their own purchased leaf bags or lawn bags, as long as they only contain leaves. Please see our website at wasatchfrontwaste.org for districtwide drop-off locations.

Sharps Containers

There are many medical conditions that require the use of lancets or needles. Due to the extreme health and safety hazards these items pose, it is important to remember that they should never be placed loosely in your garbage can, but should be disposed of in a properly identified sharps container. Also, these items, including sharps containers, are not recyclable and should never be placed in your blue recycle can. For more information, you can contact the Salt Lake County Health Department at 385-468-4100 or slco.org/health regarding the proper disposal of these and other hazardous materials.

Cart Placements

Please remember to keep your garbage/recycle/green carts at least 3 feet away from each other and from other objects, such as cars, trees or mailboxes. This space is needed for the automated collection arms on trucks to safely grab and empty the carts.
