Midvale City, in partnership with Ace Disposal, are pleased to provide you automated recycling service. Blue Ace Disposal recycling cans are picked up bi-weekly on the same day as your regular garbage collection.

  For the most efficient service, please follow these operating guidelines:

  • Place the container in the street with the wheels against the curb or within 2 feet of the blacktop, and the front of the container facing the street, by 7:00 a.m. on the scheduled collection day.
  • Place containers 4' apart and 8' from mailboxes, poles, fences, trees, or parked vehicles for easy access.
  • Recyclables will not be picked up on the Independence Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Year's Day.  Pickup will be one day later for the remainder of the week.
  • Additional containers can be requested at no additional charge.
  • Residents will be responsible for any loss or damage to the recycling container resulting from negligence or abuse, except for normal wear and tear.
