Changes Coming For Trash Service, Kimball Junction Circulator

Summit County is reporting some changes on two different fronts.    An important change in their contracted trash-pick-up service takes effect as of  January 9th.

Meanwhile,  some upgraded vehicles for the Kimball Junction Circulator  will start to operate soon.

The county’s trash hauler, Republic Services, has announced it is making a switch county-wide.    The stops for curbside and recycling service that have been scheduled for Thursday, will now change to Friday.    The reverse will also take place.

The Thursday service will now include all of Republic’s stops in North Summit, from Henefer to Wanship.    In South Summit, it also includes Peoa, Oakley, Marion and Kamas.

The Friday service now will take communities at the edge of South Summit—Francis and Woodland—plus Promontory.     Around Park City, Friday stops also include Oldtown, mountainous areas such as Empire Pass, Deer Valley, the Aerie as well as Park City Heights.

The service for suburban Park City areas, like Park Meadows, as well as Snyderville, will remain on Wednesday.

The county’s Landfill Superintendent, Tim Loveday, said the county gave permission for the change “to minimize driving miles and to provide more balanced service from an operations perspective.”

On another item, change is coming for the Kimball Junction Circulator.     County Transit operators said the Circulator fleet—which has three vehicles in all-- stopped briefly on Wednesday night, New Year’s Day, due to heavy snow, but it was back online by Thursday.   

The county’s Transportation Manager, Caroline Rodriguez, said this shouldn’t happen again since they’re getting new All-Wheel-Drive vehicles.  

Travis Gleason, representing the Circulator service, said the new vehicles are getting some cool new graphics.   He said they should be on the road, approximately, by the end of next week.

Known for getting all the facts right, as well as his distinctive sign-off, Rick covered Summit County meetings and issues for 35 years on KPCW. He now heads the Friday Film Review team.
