Solid Waste Program
The Solid Waste Program regulates the disposal of solid wastes such as municipal garbage, tires, yard waste, construction and demolition debris, contaminated soil, and sludge. The program also issues solid waste disposal permits, reviews and approves plans and specifications, performs inspections of disposal sites, and investigates complaints pertaining to the improper disposal of solid waste.
For most solid waste activities in Summit County, the Environmental Health works closely with Utah Department of Environmental Quality. We also work with Summit County’s Planning Department when local issues such as zoning and land use are involved.
Hazardous Waste Program
The Hazardous Waste Program is responsible for enforcing the county’s hazardous waste rules and regulations. These management standards apply to generators and transporters of hazardous waste, used oil and universal waste. The program also enforces permitting requirements for hazardous waste treatment, storage and disposal facilities. Hazardous Waste staff provides technical assistance to regulated businesses and to local government to ensure compliance with environmental regulations.
