While few Parkites find themselves hibernating during the winter month, they may find themselves hoarding things. The change of season and the momentary lull between the winter and summer is the perfect time to tackle projects you've been neglecting like getting rid of clothing, gear, and even old paint taking up space in your home. If you've got spring cleaning on your mind, here are some important dates you'll want to remember.
Household Hazardous Waste Collection
The Summit County Hazardous Waste Collection is scheduled for Saturday, May 6. Bring your toxic waste material by the Canyons Village parking lot from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. to prevent mercury, lead, and pesticides from contaminating our community. Acceptable items include:
- Paints, varnishes, solvents
- Motor oil, antifreeze
- All batteries
- Household cleaners
- Fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides
- Pool and spa chemicals
- Propane and white gas fuel cylinders
- Compact fluorescent bulbs (CFLs)
- Electronic waste: computers, monitors, TVs, cell phones, laptops, cables
- All mercury containing items
The service is free for residents (no businesses).
Spring Dumpster Days
Recycle Utah is saving you a trip to the landfill this spring by hosting Dumpster Days from Monday, May 8 to Saturday, May 13, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Drop your garbage and yard waste off in the two large bins placed at the center on Woodbine Way. Make sure you complete your drop-off during the designated hours only when volunteers will be around to assist you - overnight dumping is not allowed!
Park City Christian Center - Spring Cleaning Donation
On May 13 the Park City Christian Center (CCPC) is holding a spring cleaning donation bash from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Bring your old shoes, clothes, furniture, kitchenwares, decor, and recreation equipment to donate to the thrift store. And plan on sticking around awhile. Cleaning might not be the most fun in chore, but at least the CCPC is trying to make it a bit more fun with free BBQ, hot dogs, burgers, drinks (no alcohol), and live music from a DJ.
