As you may have heard, Salt Lake County Sanitation became its own independent organization as of January 1 of this year. They are now Wasatch Front Waste and Recycling District.
Although their name has changed, you will still find the same great service and customer care that you have been experiencing. Nothing with your service will change and even your fees this year will remain the same.
The Salt Lake County Council made this improvement to bring control of sanitation closer to the people, allowing the cities and townships served to have ultimate authority.
There is one change that we want to bring to your attention and that is their new billing system. Previously your sanitation fees were added to your property taxes. Legally they can no longer bill fees through property tax, so you will be receiving a bill for your 2013 sanitation services over the next few weeks.
To make it as easy as possible, you have the option of paying this fee in one or two payments through a check, or one, two or six payments through an Xpress Bill Pay online system. They will also accept checks or walk-in payments at their office, located at 604 W. 6960 S.
Wasatch Front Waste has a team who have been involved with taking care of your garbage and recycling pick up for over 30 years. Taylorsville residents received services from them before we were a city and continued to partner with them after we incorporated. They have had a 97 percent satisfaction rating from our residents, and we appreciate their great service!
