Wasatch Integrated Waste Management District

Davis Energy Recovery Facility

Permanent closure of the Davis Energy Recovery Facility is scheduled for May 31, 2017, with waste accepted through Friday, May 19, 2017.  The Davis Landfill will remain open.  Click here for news of the closure and here for special waste disposal options.

The energy recovery facility generates renewable energy through the incineration of solid waste. The waste burns at a temperature high enough to convert water into steam, which is used by Hill Air Force Base to heat base facilities, in addition to other uses. Electricity is also generated from the steam; enough to power site operations with a portion sold to PacifiCorp. Call (801) 614-5600 for tours. Picture

Davis Landfill

Solid waste that cannot be incinerated, due to incinerator capacity or size, is landfilled using the best available environmental practices. Landfill gas, generated during the decomposition of organic materials in the landfill, is collected and shipped to Hill Air Force Base where the gas is converted to electricity. Call (801) 614-5600 for tours. Picture

The Green Waste Recycling Facility

The Green Waste Recycling Facility upcycles yard waste into compost and wood chips, creating a saleable product while saving valuable landfill space. Three sizes of ground wood chips are available at $10 per scoop. Compost is available for $25 per scoop. A scoop is equivalent to approximately 1 ½ yards. Bring your truck or trailer to the landfill and we’ll load it. Download information in a printable version of the Green Waste Recycling Facility’s brochure. Picture
