Recycle Utah Holds Dumpster Days And Hazmat Collection Next Month
Recycle Utah raised about $45,000 with their 100-Mile Meal Fundraiser a couple weeks ago. Executive Director, Carolyn Wawra highlights the community partner, Vail Epic Promise, in making it a successful event.
Recycle Utah Executive Director, Carolyn Wawra says the chefs from Vail brought their unique talents to the 100-Mile Meal to bring the 175 dinner guests a creative and delicious culinary experience.
“The chefs, Alex Malmborg and his team come out and do a 100-Mile Meal with us. So, they make a whole menu based on ingredients from a 100-mile radius of the recycling center. And it was a great success. So, we had that meal about a week and a half ago. We always love working with Alex and his team from Mike Lemon and Dave Mariani serving to all the chefs cooking. And, Epic Promise has a table at the event. It’s a good partnership between Epic Promise and non-profits of the community. It was a good event.”
Next year’s date for the 100-Mile Meal is August 8th.
Wawra says the center will be closed September 2nd. Miners Day, because they plan to participate in the Miner’s Day parade.
The next Green Drinks event is September 10 from 6 to 8 PM at the Center of Excellence. Speakers will include ski team athletes addressing the affects of climate change on their future.
“Green Drinks is kind of green conversation we do with different topics. We bring in different speakers. And, in September, we’ll focus on transportation. We’ll have Caroline Rodriguez and Alfred Knotts there to talk about what’s going on in the city and the county. As well as the Central Wasatch Commission will talk a little bit about what’s going on on the Wasatch Front. And then some of the US Ski Team athletes are going to talk about what they’re doing in terms of climate change and snow and how it’s affecting their ski careers.”
Dumpster Days are September 26th through 28th.
“And there is one dumpster for large trash items that are not recyclable. So, maybe those wooden patio chairs or big plastic play set that’s plastic and metal, hard to recycle.”
They’ll hold their fall hazmat day on the 28th in the Canyons Parking area from 9 to 1.
“Summit County residents only. No businesses. If you live in Wasatch County, your option is Wasatch County Transfer Station.”
That's Carolyn Wawra from Recycle Utah.
