$0 Disposal Fee for COVID-19 Closures - For Businesses Left with Excess Food
Wasatch Resource Recovery (WRR) realizes in the wake of preventative measures resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, there are many in the food industry who are hard hit. We want to help where we can. Effects of the recent closure of all dine-in restaurants will be varied, and one of these may be large quantities of pre-purchased food that can no longer be sold. We are currently offering free disposal for any business affected by these closures. If you find yourself with excess waste, please email Morgan Bowerman with a simple explanation as to how you were affected. She will work with you on how to get wasted food to our facility and dispose of it without our regular tipping fee.
Unfortunately, we are not a hauler, and cannot pick up the waste from businesses, nor can we set prices for your waste disposal company, though we are happy to coordinate with them on these efforts. As a result, this may need to come to WRR in a personal or business vehicle. However, if you can find a way to get it to us, we will accept it free of charge.
We wish you safety and health during this difficult time.
The Team at Wasatch Resource Recovery
