The Park City Council gave its staff the OK to move forward with designing a new permanent contaminated soils repository on the city’s eastern border and making room for a new recycling center.

Park City Council member Tim Henney says the city has been struggling with what to do for contaminated soil left over from the city’s mining days.  For years, the toxic soil was dumped at Richardson Flat – but that has since been closed to all but the property owner’s private use.

The Park City Council today will consider whether it wants about 20 acres of open space near Quinn’s Junction to be used as a permanent location for contaminated soil and the location for a new Park City Recycling Center.

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.

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