Earlier this year, The Park City Council approved a new permanent contaminated soils repository location, which would give space for a new recycling center.

Carolyn Wawra is the director of Recycle Utah. She said the center talked about moving to a temporary location while the new center is built but ultimately decided to stay put. 

“It’d be really hard to operate temporarily if we get a place that’s super windy, we could be contaminating the environment by stuff blowing all around,” Wawra said. “It's best to just stay put.”

After being shut down due to the coronavirus outbreak, the Park City Recycling Center has since reopened and is continuing to host some of their regular events – almost to its pre-Covid status.

Recycle Utah Director Carolyn Wawra says they’re operating about as normal as they will get. The only changes to the center’s operations is that they’re not opening until 10 a.m. – instead of 8 a.m.

To maintain social distancing, they’re only allowing 5 cars in the center at a time...
