Delicious food promo with photo frame social media post (6)

An update from Republic Services (01/06/23 @ 10:45 AM)

Our residential recycling drivers coming up out of Salt Lake were delayed this AM due to traffic on I-80. With the snow overnight, and to err on the side of safety, Silver Creek routes will be delayed until tomorrow (1/7). Please keep in mind, continued snow may cause further delays.

The Old Town area is slick this morning, so we'll attempt Empire, Woodside and Norfolk later in the day today (1/6). We are scheduled to be there again tomorrow (1/7) for regular trash service. Anything not recovered today will be recovered tomorrow (1/7).

Recycle routes scheduled to run today include: Highland Estates, Prospector Square, Three Kings, Thaynes Canyon, Aspen Springs, Wanship and Coalville. Wanship and Coalville are scheduled for later in the day. Please note they most likely won’t be fully completed. We will be back tomorrow (1/7) to pick up what doesn’t get done today.

Recycling for Francis, Woodland, Promontory and Silver Creek Village are scheduled for tomorrow (1/7). Please note, weather may push these routes until Monday (1/9). 

Echo, Henefer and Hoytsville recyling is also scheduled for tomorrow (1/7). It’s off-week for Kamas, Marion, Oakley and Peoa. These areas will be addressed next week as scheduled.

We will update again this evening (1/6). Thank you. - Republic Services


An update from Republic Services (01/05/23 @ 7:00 PM)

Summit Park is complete for residential trash as of today (1/5). 

Following a truck slide on Crescent that needed to be towed, Silver Creek residential recycle was not complete.  There is still trash down on Crescent, Tollgate, Pace and Highfield.

Thaynes Canyon, Old Ranch Road, and Trailside Road trash will be recovered early tomorrow (1/6). 

In Park City, Empire Ave, Woodside and Norfolk trash will be recovered tomorrow (1/6) and then again on Saturday (1/7). 

We are still a full day behind on residential recycle.

 We will follow up tomorrow (1/6/23) as we continue to make progress. Thank you. - Republic Services 


An update from Republic Services (1/4/23 @ 7:45 PM)

We finished up Jeremy Ranch from yesterday’s trash route. We are still working on Summit Park, the high side and any small streets that were still slick as of this afternoon remain in the area. We will be back tomorrow morning (1/5).

We finished everything on trash in Silver Creek (Service Area #3) with the exception of Crescent, Pace, Highfield and Tollgate. Those roads were too slick and steep to service. We will return tomorrow (1/5).

We also have Glenwild left down for trash. It will be addressed tomorrow (1/5) as well.

For residential recycle, we will be in Silver Creek (Service area #3), Blackhawk and Glenwild tomorrow (1/5).

We will give another update tomorrow morning (1/5). Thank you. - Republic Services


An update from Republic Services (01/04/23 @ 9:15 AM)

We have a truck this morning (1/4) in Jeremy Ranch catching up from yesterday’s service. We will be in Summit Park this afternoon (1/4). 

All other Tuesday routes (Silver Creek, Redstone, Spring Creek, Black Hawk, Glenwild, The Colonies I, II , & III, Bear Hollow, Park West/Canyons, Silver Springs, Willow Creek, Sunpeak, Snydersmill, White Pine, and Ranch Place) will start today (1/4), a day behind as scheduled. 

On residential recycle, we are a full day behind, but it looks like we’re on track to be completely caught up by Saturday (1/7). 

Reminder: if you have trash that does not fit in your container due to the delays, leave it with your bins on your scheduled day. We’re running extra personnel on all the front loads to pick up garbage that is in excess of the container. 

We will give another update this evening (1/4). Thank you. - Republic Services 


An update from Republic Services (01/03/23 @ 7:15 PM)

We made quite a bit of progress today on last week’s missed routes and today’s scheduled routes. 

However, we were not able to complete Jeremy Ranch today. Approximately 5 trucks got stuck in different locations which played a significant role in slowing us down. We plan to return tomorrow 1/4 to complete. 

Like we mentioned earlier today, we also plan on attempting Summit Park tomorrow (1/4). 

On residential recycle, we are a full day behind. 

Once again, if you have trash that does not fit in your container due to the delays, leave it with your bins on your scheduled day. We will pick it up on this week’s residential trash day. 

We will give another update tomorrow morning (1/4). Thank you. - Republic Services


A message from Republic Services (01/03/23 @ 12:50 PM):

We've delayed Summit Park services for today (1/3) due to slick road conditions and will attempt to clean them up tomorrow 1/4).

All other Monday routes (Jeremy Ranch, South Ridge, Pinebrook, and Timberline) will start today (1/3), a day behind as scheduled.

For Francis/Woodland/Kamas/Promontory and Upper Deer Valley, we
will have additional resources out trying to catch up on the trash and recycle left down from late last week.

On your scheduled service day, if you have extra bags that do not fit into your bins, please place them next to the containers.

We will provide another update end-of-day today (1/3). Thank you for your continued patience. -Republic Services


An update from Republic Services (12/31/22): 

Due to road conditions and truck issues, we will not complete all of our residential service routes scheduled for today (12/31/22). We also have several streets in Silver Creek and Summit Park left from routes earlier in the week that still need to be serviced. 

Republic Services' regular operations will resume on Tuesday (1/03/23) and we will work diligently on getting caught up from there. Thank you for your continued patience. Weather permitting, we should be caught up before the end of next week. - Republic Services


A message from Republic Services (12/30/22):

In observance of the Christmas holiday on December 26th and the New Year holiday on January 2, our service routes are delayed by one day.

These planned delays, combined with icy road conditions and necessary safety precautions have resulted in our operations being delayed further.

Right now, we are working diligently to service your waste and recycling community but cannot anticipate your service time.

As of today (12/30/22), we ask that Monday - Wednesday routes please bring your containers back in if you have not yet been serviced this week. Because of the holiday next week, you can bring your containers back out next week the day after your normal service day (If you’re normally serviced on Tuesday, place your containers out on Wednesday). If your service day is Thursday or Friday of this week, you should keep your container out today and Saturday. We are still running Thursday's routes today and will be trying to do Friday’s routes on Saturday.

Due to high call volume, we at Republic Services are also delayed in responding to your voicemails and emails.

Again, thank you for your continued patience.

-Republic Services
