Recycling

To encourage recycling and promote our environmental initiatives, Ogden City provides blue recycle carts as a free service. However, putting non-recyclables in blue recycle carts may warrant their removal. Please refer to our detailed documentation for a listing of accepted recyclable items. 

Glass Recycling

Ogden City provides residents with glass recycling options at four separate locations. Large containers marked ‘Glass Recycling’ are located at 4th Street ParkWeber State University, the Green Waste Site and Ogden High School’s south parking lot.

Residents can drop off all types of glass at the bins, including brown, green and clear glass. Glass is not allowed in the blue recycle bins residents have at their home for curb side collection—those bins are to be used for plastic, aluminum, cardboard, and paper products only.

Momentum Recycling maintains the glass recycling bins and coverts post-consumer glass into high-quality raw material at their Salt Lake facility for a wide range of uses including decorative tiles, fiberglass insulation, sandblasting, filtration systems, and concrete additives.

Residents are urged to rinse out glass bottles, jars and containers and remove their labels and lids.
