|The City of West Jordan has several recycling programs including seasonal green waste pickup; curbside paper, plastic and metal collection; glass recycling drop off sites; and paper and electronic shred events are held four times per year. These programs help keep recyclables out of the landfill. The City partners with Ace Disposal, Tams Electronic Recycling, Rocky Mountain Recycling and Batteries Plus Bulbs to bring these recycling programs to you. |

Paper Shredding and E-Waste Recycling
West Jordan residents can bring up to two “bankers boxes” of paper for shredding and residential electronic waste four times per year during the city's recycling events. Documents will be shredded on site in the west parking lot behind City Hall, 8000 S. Redwood Road. Hard drives can also be shredded if they have been removed from the computer. Unfortunately, televisions, CRT monitors, cracked LCD’s and printers are not accepted. However, TransJordan Landfill may allow some of those items to be deposited by our residents. Please contact Trans Jordan Landfill for more information at 801-569-8994.
Batteries Plus Bulbs will also be on hand to recycle batteries. They will accept all types of rechargeable batteries including car and motorcycle batteries, sealed lead acid batteries, NiCD, NiMH, and Li-ion batteries. Additionally, they will accept limited quantities of non-rechargeable batteries including up to 10 pounds of alkaline and up to 1 pound of lithium battery cells. They are unable to accept commercial recycling and hybrid/electric vehicle batteries such as Liquid NiCD or Liquid NiMH.
Please bring proof of residency or city employment (driver’s license, utility bill or city ID badge). Two glass recycling drop off bins are also available: one is in the parking lot of the old library, 1970 West 7800 South, and at the intersection of 7800 South and New Sycamore Drive (7025 West).
