Correction to the Garbage Can Reminders section in the Spring 2007 Newsletter

Article Published 03/20/2007

Questions have arisen over items that were listed in the Spring Newsletter as prohibited from being placed in the garbage cans. The City was under the understanding that these items could not be handled by the waste incinerators. We have contacted Wasatch Integrated Waste (the Burn Plant) and they have indicated that all of the items listed CAN be handled by the waste incinerators and therefore, can be thrown away in the garbage cans.

Some rules still apply. This would include not putting anything in the garbage can that could damage the can (i.e. hot ashes), and items need to fit into the can; branches, tires, or other large objects need to be cut into pieces before being placed in the can.
