I recently moved from the Salt Lake City area to St. George. A moving company packed up our belongings and moved all of our items down to Southern Utah for us. We have spent the last four months unpacking our belongings and moving into our new house. When we finished unloading everything, we had hundreds of boxes in all shapes and sizes to recycle.
I went online and got mixed information. Some grocery and home improvement stores in the area said that they recycle boxes on their websites, but when I called about it, they knew nothing about a recycling program. Finally, I called Rocky Mountain Recycling Center. They told me to bring any boxes I had to their recycling location and they would gladly recycle the boxes for us, at no charge.
Recycling is the process of converting waste materials into new materials and objects. It is an alternative to “conventional” waste disposal that can save materials. I didn’t know what to expect, but I drove a bunch of boxes to the recycling center. When I pulled in, there were workers there who directed me to the cardboard box area. They came and helped me pull the boxes out of my car and wished me well as I left the recycling center. Since my first visit, I have dropped off many boxes to the recycling center. I feel good about making sure the boxes get recycled. I like that my boxes are not taking up space in a landfill area, but are being converted into new materials and objects.
If you need a place to recycle I highly recommend the Rocky Mountain Recycling Center. Their address is: 838 N 1080 E, St George, UT 84770.
