Shredding

Each year in September, Midvale City hosts a Shredding Event at Midvale City Hall. This free event offers Midvale residents a secure and convenient method for disposing of confidential documents and sensitive information, effectively reducing the potential risks linked to identity theft and fraud. 

Electronic Waste (E-Waste) 

Electronic devices (computers, monitors, radios, cell phones, etc.) have harmful substances like lead, mercury, cadmium, and flame retardants in them. When people throw these electronics away in regular garbage or burn them, these dangerous chemicals can get into the environment, like the soil, water, and air. What makes it worse is that we're getting rid of electronic devices, called e-waste, faster than anything else in the United States.

  • The Salt Lake County Landfill will accept residential E-Waste free of charge. Salt Lake Valley Landfill Disposal & Recycling Facilities is located at 6030 W California Avenue in Salt Lake City. They are open Monday through Saturday from 7 am to 5 pm 
  • Best Buy offers an electronic and appliance trade-in and recycling program to help reduce e-waste. There is a charge for televisions and a limit on how many items you can bring per visit.  This program is available at the following locations:  Murray, Sandy, West Jordan, and Salt Lake City. 
  • TransJordan Landfill - Electronic waste recycling services have been suspended due to issues related to hauling and labor shortages. During this period, all electronics should be disposed of as regular trash and will be subject to standard disposal rates until further notice.
