Disposal of Hazardous Waste

We can help with many of your disposal needs including construction materials, landscaping materials and household clean outs; however, we do not transport or dispose of any hazardous waste such as oil, fuel, paint or other hazardous chemicals.  We can transport empty or completely hardened, empty paint cans.  If there is only a small amount of paint remaining in a can, you can leave the lid off until it hardens; or, if you have a bag of post mix or concrete you can add a small amount to the remaining paint and it will harden.  We can then dispose of this for you.

As many of our customers have larger amounts of leftover paint or chemicals such as pesticides or fertilizers we have listed information that will help them safely dispose of these materials.  Within Salt Lake County, there are numerous yearly events.  These events generally run each year from April to August.  The following link is an example of the collection events held throughout Salt Lake County in 2016, an updated 2017 link will be added when available:

Additionally, there are several facilities open all year long where you can dispose of hazardous waste materials; they are both open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.  The address for these facilities is listed below:

Salt Lake Valley Landfill located at 6030 West California Ave, Salt Lake City, UT. 
Transjordan Landfill is located at 10473 S Bacchus Hwy, South Jordan.
