On January 20th, the Ogden City Planning Commission granted an extension to Recycled Earth to come into compliance with its Conditional Use Permit (CUP). The extension requires Recycled Earth to maintain operations that are in accordance with the rules and regulations contained within the permit. This approval will allow Recycled Earth to once again receive and process recyclable material from Ogden City, which is in the best interest of the city and its residents.
Ogden City suspended deliveries to its recycling provider on March 3rd, 2020. The reason for the suspension was that city recycling trucks were being directed to dump their loads outdoors, which was a violation of the CUP. Among various other guidelines, the operating permit requires all dumping, sorting, and bailing to occur inside a building. Outdoor dumping had previously led to significant problems for neighboring properties, including odors, blowing debris, and attraction of seagulls.
“Recycling has always been a top priority for our administration, and we’re excited to bring that service back to our City,” said Ogden Mayor Mike Caldwell. “We have heard input from many of our residents and whole-heartedly agree that offering this curbside recycling service is the responsible choice for our environment, and we hope to continue offering this service to residents for many years to come. We appreciate the communities’ patience as we worked through some difficult market-place and legal issues.”
