Benefits of Green Waste & Recycling

Green Waste

The City offers curbside green waste collection beginning March 1 through November 30 each year. Pickup is weekly on the same day as the regular garbage collection day.

If you have questions, or want to sign up, call us at (801) 229-7275.  To have a can repaired or replaced, call (801) 852-0060

If you are not participating in the curbside program or if you have more green waste than your can will hold, you may take it to the North Pointe Transfer Station at 2000 West 200 South Lindon (far west end of Orem’s 2000 North).

The City of Orem will provide residents with a regular landfill pass for regular garbage loads in the spring and fall. This pass will be included in your utility bill. This is a pass for a single load, no exceptions will be made.

You can reach the North Pointe Transfer Station at (801) 225-8170.

IMPORTANCE OF RECYCLING
The first thing they teach students in an Economics class is that resources are scarce. Recycling is an excellent way to conserve and re-use those scarce resources. Recycling is important to the environment and saves the City money in landfill fees. It conserves natural resources and preserves a legacy of resources for future generations. In many areas, recycling is mandatory; Orem City has chosen to keep it voluntary. However, as Mayor Washburn has challenged, “we need to lead out in Orem, set the precedent, and make recycling and conserving resources a part of life.” Orem City has an automated recycling program that residents can participate in.

PARTICIPATION IS SIMPLE

“We need to lead out in Orem, set the precedent, and make recycling and conserving resources a part of life.”

– Mayor Washburn

The recycling bin looks like the regular trash bin, except that it is blue. Participation is extremely simple; residents can put all their recyclables (all paper products,  plastics and all metals-tin, aluminum etc.) inside the bin without separating them and wheel the bin out to the curb every other week. A schedule of pick up days will be delivered with the bin. To set up service, call our Utility Billing department at (801) 229-7275.

SIGNING UP

Residents can sign-up for recycling and/or green waste service by calling Orem City Utility Billing at (801) 229-7275.

Taking Waste to the Dump Yourself

When you have more garbage or green waste than will fit in your can, you may take that trash to the landfill on your own. The North Pointe Landfill is located at 2000 W 200 S, in Lindon. They are open 7:00 am to 6:00 pm M-F and 8:00 am to 3:00 pm on Saturday.  Orem is a ‘participating’ city so as you can see on the attached fee schedule, you will receive a reduced rate on your load.  Please be sure to take proof that you are an Orem resident in the form of an ID with your Orem address or your Orem City Utility bill. There is no charge for loads containing only green waste as long as your load is covered and you provide proof of Orem residency.

Check out North Pointe’s fees on their website.
