About Recycle Utah

Our Story:
The Park City Conservation Association dba Recycle Utah is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization that has served residents of Summit County since 1991. We are committed to reducing waste and preventing ground water pollution in our community. We do so by offering a variety of collection programs, education programs, workshops, and events. As long as the health of our local and global environment is a concern, we will strive to offer community-based resources and solutions.

Our Mission: Our mission is to empower people to lead sustainable lives.

Brief History: A group of concerned citizens established the Park City Conservation Association in 1991 in response to a dire lack of recycling opportunities in the Park City area. They made it their mission to collect recycling, promote water conservation, and eventually to envision a zero waste plan for Summit County. Today we prevent 200 tons of valuable materials from wasting in the landfill every month. We accept over 50 different items for re-use, recycling, or haz-mat treatment. Our environmental educators visit up to 3,000 elementary school children throughout Summit and Wasatch Counties every year.
