North Salt Lake officials want feedback from residents over whether there would be an interest in curbside green waste recycling. Though an online survey at www.nslcity.org is currently being retooled to be more informative, residents are welcome to send an e-mail including their answers to the survey questions.
“We want to hear back from people,” said North Salt Lake City Recorder Larae Dillingham.
City officials are currently working to pin down prices for the possible curbside green waste program, which unlike regular curbside recycling won’t vary according to participation.
The green waste recycling survey asks how many garbage cans the person has, followed by how many trimmings the person places in his can.
Also included is whether or not the person would get rid of one of his garbage cans if he had a green waste can, how much he would pay for curbside green waste collection, and whether or not he believes that such a program would be worthwhile.
Answers can be e-mailed to either firstname.lastname@example.org, or email@example.com. Other thoughts on curbside green waste recycling may be included as well, though please stay to the requested topic.
North Salt Lake started a curbside recycling program for normal garbage earlier this year, following in the footsteps of several other Davis County cities. Fruit Heights has already started a green waste program in their city, while Centerville is working to implement one approved by the council earlier this year.
Curbside green waste programs are designed to improve the efficiency of the burn plant, which is hampered by the moisture found in grass clippings.
