Recycling Coalition of Utah’s 3rd Annual Utah America Recycles Day

Ace Recycling and Disposal joined the Recycling Coalition of Utah for their 3rd Annual Utah America Recycles Day. We joined many businesses throughout Utah that are committed to improving recycling opportunities throughout Utah.

We were able to share updates on many new and exciting recycling programs in the State of Utah. These programs represent the best of recycling in the State.  We were also able to discuss future recycling trends including the trend to move away from single stream recycling programs.  Recycling and solid waste is a major service for any community.  

The expo highlights included a sort line competition, a battle of recycled percussion bands, a recycled art show and three merit badges for scouts.
